Crunchyroll Adds Inside Mari, Silver Nina, Love Theory Manga

posted on by Egan Loo

Media service Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it is releasing the manga series Inside Mari (Boku wa Mari no Naka), Silver Nina (Shirogane no Nina), and Love Theory (Love Riron) as they are published in Japan.

Inside Mari follows an "angel-like" beautiful high school girl with a certain secret she has been hiding from everyone, and an idle hikikomori (one who adnormally avoids social contant) young man; the highlight of his day is seeing Mari at the convenience store. The story begins as Mari wakes up in her room, but something feels amiss about the room and even her own body.

Shūzō Oshimi, the manga creator of Drifting Net Café and Flowers of Evil, launched the manga in Futabasha's Manga Action magazine in 2012. Vertical publishes Oshimi's Flowers of Evil in North America, while JManga once offered Oshimi's earlier Hyōryū Net Cafe manga under the name Drifting Net Café.

Crunchyroll describes the story of Silver Nina by Itokatsu (Oniyome Diary artist):

Shimazaki Shutaro goes back home to the country, after losing his job in Tokyo.  To his surprise, when he opens the door to his family home, he finds a beautiful little girl with silver hair and blue eyes.  Taking place in a city on a plateau, a tired young man and a beautiful half Japanese girl bring you a story of the slow, calming life in the country!! 

Masaki Satō and Keiya Mizuno's Love Theory began as the "ultimate love manual" published by "love education instructor Aiya Mizuno," the penname of Keiya Mizuno (Yume o Kanaeru Zō). Satō (Chō-Mukiryoku Sentai Japafive) then used the how-to book as the basis for a fictional story about a virgin who finds success with these lessons.

The sexual comedy story follows Yarahata, a college student who lacks good looks, money, or any sense of what to do around women. However he meets Aiya, a ghost and self-proclaimed "love education instructor." Aiya trains Yarahata on the techniques to be cool and desirable to women.

Satou and Mizuno launched the manga in Futabasha's Manga Action magazine in June 2012. The manga is getting a television adaptation this winter, and Mizuno's Yume o Kanaeru Zō book already inspired a television anime.
