Hinako Note Manga About Girl With Poor Speech Gets TV Anime
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The October issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Cune magazine is revealing on Saturday that a television anime adaptation of Mitsuki's Hinako Note manga has been green-lit.
The manga centers on titular protagonist Hinako, who is poor at speaking, and lives in a rural part of Japan. She wants to improve her speech to be able to talk to people freely, so in high school, she transfers schools to Tokyo and plans to join a theater club. When she arrives, it turns out her boarding house is a secondhand bookstore, and a girl who eats books lives there.
Mitsuki launched the manga alongside Comic Cune, a former magazine-within-a-magazine supplement for four-panel manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine, in August 2014. When Comic Cune relaunched as a full-fledged standalone magazine in August 2015, the manga relocated to the new magazine. The issue shipping on Saturday celebrates Comic Cune's first anniversary as a full-fledged magazine. Kadokawa will publish Hinako Note's second compiled book volume on Saturday.
