Wolf Girl & Black Prince Shōjo Manga Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The May issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine is announcing on Saturday that a television anime of Ayuko Hatta's Wolf Girl & Black Prince (Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji) shōjo manga has been green-lit.
The story centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyōya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog.
Kanae Ito will play Erika Shinohara in the anime, while Takahiro Sakurai will play Kyōya Sata. The rest of the cast includes:
- Ai Kayano as Ayumi Santa
- Mariya Ise as Marin Tachibana
- Mikako Komatsu as Aki Tezuka
- Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yoshito Kimura
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Nozomi Kamiya
- Yoshimasa Hosoya as Takeru Hibiya
- Ayumu Murase as Yū Kusakabe
Hatta launched the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2011, and Shueisha published the eighth volume last December. The manga inspired a novel and a drama CD, which also stars Itō and Sakurai.
