Tsukako Akina launched the Girl Friend (Kari) Kokomi Shiina ~Koi Shite Madonna~ manga in the September issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Maoh magazine on July 26.

CyberAgent's blogging website Ameba started service for the game for smartphones in 2012. As of June 2014, the number of registered users has passed 5.3 million. The game features over one hundred girls for the player to date, each voiced by a different voice actress.

The series will premiere in Japan on October 12.
