Kare Baka Gag Manga Gets Anime Adaptation Green-Lit
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The first chapter of Masahiro Totsuka and Saki Adumi's Kare Baka: Wagahai no Kare wa Baka de R (Idiot Boyfriend ~My Boyfriend is an Idiot) manga revealed on Friday that an anime project has been green-lit.
The love comedy gag manga centers around a girl named Akomi and her boyfriend Ponta Ninomiya. Ninomiya is a massive idiot who has no redeeming qualities aside from being really handsome. The manga follows the couple's everyday lives.
Adumi and Totsuka previously serialized the manga under the title Wagahai no Kare wa Baka de Aru (My Boyfriend is an Idiot) in Hakusensha's irregularly published Young Animal Island magazine starting in October 2013. Hakusensha simultaneously published the manga in the web magazine Young Animal Densi. Hakusensha released the second compiled volume in July 2014.
Totsuka wrote the original Bamboo Blade manga with Aguri Igarashi, and both Totsuka and Adumi worked together on the 12-volume Bamboo Blade B spinoff manga, although Adumi was then credited as part of the group Studio Neko. The two ended Bamboo Blade B in 2013. The original Bamboo Blade manga inspired a television anime series in 2007-2008.
