'Good Morning Call' Shōjo Manga Gets Screen Adaptation
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January issue of Shueisha's Cookie magazine is announcing on Thursday that a "screen adaptation" of Yue Takasuka's shōjo manga Good Morning Call has been green-lit. The announcement did not specify the medium (anime or live-action) or format (television, film, home video, or online) of the adaptation.
The magazine is also announcing that Takasuka will launch the Good Morning Kiss Marina-hen spinoff manga arc. The first chapter will have 40 pages, and will have a color opening page. The manga will also be featured in the issue's front cover. The magazine teases the story:
Nao is surprised at Marina's sudden confession. How is Uehara connected to this?
In addition, the next issue of the magazine will bundle a reprint of the entire first compiled book volume of Good Morning Call.
The manga centers around Nao, a third-year middle school student who, due to her parents' obligations, ends up living by herself in an apartment for her final semester of middle school. However, on her moving day, a boy is also moving into the same place. The boy turns out be Uehara, who goes to the same middle school. The two end up living together.
Takasuka launched her Good Morning Call manga in Shueisha's Ribon magazine in 1997, and ended it in 2002. Shueisha published the manga's 11th and final volume in 2002. The manga received a one-episode OVA adaptation in 2001. Takasuka launched a sequel to the original manga titled Good Morning Kiss in Cookie in 2007, which is currently ongoing. Shueisha published the manga's 12th compiled book volume in November 2014.
