Story of romance made through marriage interview has live-action DVD coming in April

The March issue of Shonengahosha's Young Comic magazine announced last month that Ryuta Amazuma (Nana to Kaoru, Kimi no Na o Yobeba)'s Happy Negative Marriage manga will end in the magazine's May issue on April 10.

The original manga revolves around Keitarō Satō, a 30-year-old virgin who is working hard and living the life of a typical bachelor. His boss and parents set him up with a "miai," or marriage interview. At the interview he meets Shimako Akio, and falls in love.

Amazume began the manga in 2010, and Shonengahosha shipped the fourth compiled volume last July. A live-action DVD adaptation of the manga was announced in January, and the DVD will ship on April 2.

Amazume's Toshiue no Hito college romance manga received a direct-to-DVD live-action drama series last year, and his Nana to Kaoru manga series also received two live-action film adaptations and an original anime video. Seto previously starred in the second Nana to Kaoru film.
