Boys Be…~adult season~ Manga Launches in Japan
posted on by Egan Loo
Creator Masahiro Itabashi and artist Hiroyuki Tamakoshi launched their Boys Be…~adult season~ manga series in this year's 17th issue of Kodansha's Evening magazine on Saturday. Even though the magazine is biweekly, the manga will run quarterly. The manga is an omnibus of short "sweet-and-sour love stories for adults."
Itabashi and Tamakoshi serialized their first Boys Be… series in Weekly Shonen Magazine in the 1990s, followed by Boys Be...2nd Season and Boys Be...L Co-op. They then started their Boys Be… Next Season series in a different magazine, Kodansha's Magazine Special, in 2009, and they ended that series this past February. Itabashi and Tamakoshi started another Boys Be… manga series called Boys Be… 2009 1-Gakki (Boys Be… 2009 Term I) on Kodansha's MiChao mobile comic website in April 2009.
Tokyopop published most of the Boys Be...2nd Season series, without the "2nd Season" appellation, in North America. Right Stuf first released the 2000 animated adaptation in 2006. There were also live-action television drama and stage musical adaptations in Japan.
