Kodansha's Morning magazine began streaming a voice comic video for Yui Sakuma's Complex Age manga on Friday. Kodansha published the video to commemorate the release of the manga's fifth volume on Friday.
The video adapts the manga's first chapter, and stars Kyōko Narumi (Teekyū's Nasuno) as Nagisa Kataoka.
Other cast members include:
- Maria Tanijiri as Kimiko Baba
- Hikaru Koide as Aya Kurihara / Ururu
- Yuki Nakajima as Shiho
- Izumi Araida as Nagisa's Mother
- Arisa Aihara as giggling cosplayer
- Eri Sogabe
- Renpei Yasuda
- Kōtarō Shinohara

Kodansha Comics will publish the series in special large-format paperback books starting in June 2016. The series "offers an in-depth look at the life of cosplayer Nagisa Kataura as she gets older and tries to keep her beloved hobby a secret."
Sakuma published an earlier one-shot of the manga in Morning in May 2013, and the one-shot won a Tetsuya Chiba award in 2013. Sakuma then launched a serialized version in the same magazine May 2014. This year's 27th issue of Morning published the manga's final chapter on June 4. Kodansha will publish the sixth and final compiled volume on September 23.
