Romantica Clock Shōjo Comedy Manga Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The February issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine is announcing on Friday that The Romantica Clock manga by Yoko Maki is inspiring a television anime in February.
The Romantica Clock is a comedy about twins: the beautiful, popular, and energetic Akane, and her smart, aloof brother Aoi. Akane, who has felt jealous of Aoi since she was a young child, continues to be unable to get along with him even as the two grow older.
The anime will run on February 4, 18, and 25 as segments within the children's television program Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") on TV Tokyo.
Maki launched the manga in Ribon last year, and Shueisha published the third book volume in September. Maki's Aishiteruze Baby was also serialized in Ribon, and it also inspired a television anime in 2004. Viz published Aishiteruze Baby in North America beginning in 2006.
