Matsumoto's Kimagure Orange Road romantic comedy manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1984 to 1987, and it inspired a television anime series, multiple original video anime volumes, and two movies. The story focuses on a love triangle between the protagonist Kyōsuke and his two friends Madoka and Hikaru. Digital Manga Publishing licensed the manga earlier this year.
Sekai Project also reported that visual novel producer Visual Arts' Key label will attend the convention as an exhibitor. Sekai Project recently posted a survey to gauge interest in localizing Key's titles in English.
