Kanae Hazuki's Say "I love you" Shōjo Manga Gets Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The July issue of Kodansha's Dessert magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Kanae Hazuki's Suki-tte Ii na yo. (Say "I love you".) shōjo manga has been green-lit. (The illustration of the manga is on the lefthand side of the pictured magazine cover.)
The story of first love centers around Mei Tachibana, a girl who has never made friends or had a boyfriend in 16 years. One day, she accidentally injures Yamato Kurosawa, the school's most popular boy. For some reason, Yamato becomes interested in Mei and starts a one-sided friendship with her. He even protects her from a stalker — by kissing her.
Hazuki launched the manga in 2008, and Kodansha published the eighth compiled book volume this past January. Dessert is also announcing that Robico's Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (The Monster Seated Next to You) manga is getting an anime.
