Koi wa Ameagari no You ni Romance Manga Gets Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Jun Mayuzuki's story of 17-year-old girl in love with 45-year-old restaurant manager

This year's 14th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine is announcing on Monday that an anime adaptation of Jun Mayuzuki's Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (Love is Like After the Rain) manga has been green-lit.

The manga centers on 17-year-old high school student Akira Tachibana, a girl who barely expresses herself. She harbors a secret crush on Masami Kondō, the 45-year-old manager of the family restaurant she works at part-time.

Mayuzuki launched the manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Big Comic Spirits in 2014, before it transferred to Weekly Big Comic Spirits early 2016, where it serializes a new chapter every other week. Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled book volume in October, and will publish the manga's seventh volume on March 10.

The manga was nominated for the ninth Manga Taisho awards in 2016, and was ranked #4 in the 2016 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook.
