Jinsei Light Novel About School Newspaper Has Anime in the Works
posted on by Egan Loo
The wraparound jacket band on the sixth volume of Ougyo Kawagishi's Jinsei (La Bonne Vie) light novel series is announcing on Tuesday that an anime adaptation project is in the works. The jacket band is also announcing that a manga adaptation has been green-lit.
The story centers around Yūki Akamatsu, a boy who joins the staff of his school's second newspaper. The editor-in-chief Ayaka Nikaidō immediately assigns him to the life (jinsei) advice column. Three girls — the science representative Rino Endō, the liberal arts representative Fumi Kujō, and the physical education representative Ikumi Suzuki — answer requests from students about whatever is troubling them.
Kawagishi started the light novel series with illustrations by Meruchi Nanase in 2012. The December issue of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine teased that an "a__me adaptation" project was in the works.
