posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Viz Media's Shojo Beat imprint announced on Sunday that it has licensed Ryoko Fukuyama's Fukumenkei Noise shōjo manga series under the title Anonymous Noise. Viz Media plans to release the first volume in March 2017.
Viz Media describes the series:
A girl who loves to sing, Nino Arisugawa experiences her first heart wrenching goodbye when her beloved childhood friend, Momo, moves away. And after Nino befriends Yuzu, a music composer, she experiences another sad parting! With music as their common ground and only outlet, how will unrequited love play out? Since both boys promised Nino that they will find her one day through her singing, she holds on to that hope and continues to reach out with her voice. Now in high school, Nino serendipitously reunites with Yuzu, but she yearns to see Momo again…
Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine announced in April that the series will receive a television anime adaptation. The magazine's 21st issue will have an "important announcement" for the franchise on Wednesday.
Fukuyama launched the series in Hana to Yume in April 2013. Hakusensha published the 10th compiled book volume in August.
Tokyopop published six volumes of Fukuyama's 16-volume Nosatsu Junkie manga in English.
