Yuki Kure will launch the manga adaptation of Koei's La Corda D'Oro 3 dating simulation game in the January issue of Hakusensha's LaLa shōjo manga magazine on November 22. Kure also created the original character designs in the game itself. The story follows a girl named Kanade and her relationships with the orchestra members and the other boys at her school. The anime of the game will premiere on NTV in April.
Kure created the manga adaptation of Koei's first La Corda D'Oro dating simulation game, and she ended that earlier manga in 2011. Viz Media published the last of 17 La Corda D'Oro manga volumes in North America in May. Kure also drew Linden Hall no Aria -Kin-iro no Corda Series- (Linden Hall Aria: La Corda d'Oro Series), another manga that followed La Corda D'Oro 3's Kanade, in Lala.
The game franchise already inspired a television anime series in 2006, and a sequel, La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~, aired in spring of 2009. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the series on DVD in North America, and Crunchyroll streamed both anime.
