Koe Koi Adaptation Confirmed As Live-Action Show Starring Mei Nagano
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The free manga app Comico announced on Saturday that Dōruru's Koe Koi (Voice Love) manga is getting a live-action television series adaptation.
The app had announced last month that the manga would get a screen adaptation, but did not announce the format of the adaptation at that time.
The series will star Mei Nagano (live-action Rurouni Kenshin's Tsubame, Ore Monogatari!!'s Rinko, Peach Girl's Sae, pictured at right) as Yuiko. Sonoko Inoue will perform the ending theme song "Natsukoi" (Summer Love).
The series will premiere in July and will air on TV Tokyo on Fridays late at night.
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 46th chapter debuted on Friday. The manga's first compiled book volume will ship in Japan on June 11, and the second compiled volume is slated to ship in August.
