The June issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine announced on Saturday that the television anime adaptation of Nana Haruta's Tsubasa to Hotaru shojo romantic comedy manga will receive more episodes this month.

The new episodes will air on May 10, 17, and 24 as segments within the Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") program on TV Tokyo. Kanae Itō, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Takahiro Sakurai will reprise their roles as Tsubasa Sonokawa, Aki Hidaka, and Yūma Toba, respectively.

The first anime adaptation of Haruta's manga was a special that was screened at the Ribon Festa 2014 event. The anime received three additional episodes last March.

The story of Tsubasa to Hotaru revolves around Tsubasa Sonokawa, a 15-year old high school girl who fell in love with her upperclassman when he saved her after she fainted at the train station from anemia. She thought it was a meeting of fate, and visited him at his class every day. However, he told her that her feelings were "heavy," and he dumped her. She once again meets a boy after taking over her friend Yuri's job as boy's basketball team manager. She learns that she might have more of a connection with this boy named Aki than she first thought...

Haruta began the manga in 2013, and Shueisha published the seventh compiled volume of the manga in Japan on Monday. The first chapter of the manga is available to read for free on Ribon's official website. Viz Media publishesd Haruta's Cactus's Secret and Chocolate Cosmos manga in North America.
