Online teammates unexpectedly have to share a room in real life

The website for Square Enix's massively multiplayer online role-playing game Dragon Quest X announced that Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu manga creator Renjuro Kindaichi launched the romantic comedy manga series Yūbe wa Otanoshimi Deshita ne (It Was Fun Last Night) on Thursday.

The story centers around Powder, who has been enjoying the world of Dragon Quest X and spends every day playing with party members online. One day, Powder unexpectedly has to share a room in real life with a teammate named Gorō. They discover that their real-life personas are not quite the same as their game personas.

The entire first chapter of the manga debuted on Square Enix's Gangan Online website for free on Thursday. Then, the first two chapters appeared in this year's 13th issue of Young Gangan magazine on Friday.

The Dragon Quest X Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku Online MMORPG shipped for the Wii U last year after launching for the Wii in 2012. Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii revealed on a radio program last week that Dragon Quest XI is in production.

Kindaichi launched the manga Jungle wa Itsumo Hare Nochi Guu in 1996, and the manga inspired the Haré+Guu television series, as well as the Haré+Guu Deluxe and Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final original video anime. AN Entertainment licensed the television anime and Haré+Guu Deluxe in North America. Kindaichi is also serializing the manga LaLaLa in Young Gangan.
