Koe Koi Romance Manga Gets Screen Adaptation
posted on by Egan Loo
The free manga app Comico announced on April 29 that Dōruru's Koe Koi (Voice Love) manga will receive a screen adaptation. The announcement did not state whether the adaptation will be live-action or anime, or in what format (for example, television series, video project, web series, or film).
The app also announced that the manga's first compiled book volume will ship in Japan on June 11.
The romance manga is about "love that starts with a voice." The story follows the relationship that is "a little different" between high school students Yuiko and Matsubara, a boy who is also "a little different." Matsubara is a kind boy with a wonderful voice. After hearing him over the phone, Yuiko finally meets Matsubara at school and discovers that he always wears a paper bag over his head. Yuiko wonders about the mysterious boy, and their relationship begins.
Dōruru launched the manga on the Comico app in May 2015, and the 45th chapter debuted on May 6. The manga's main story had been on hiatus from February 26 to April 29. The series' second compiled volume is slated to ship in August.
Comico is a free manga-reading smartphone app created by NHN PlayArt, and it has over 12 million downloads.
