Malaysian publisher Gempak Starz announced on Saturday that it has licensed Takara Akegami's Hatsukoi Izonshō manga, and will release it with the title Asyiknya Cinta Pertama this month.
Gempak Starz describes the manga:
"My first love situation just got more complicated."
Ten years since second grade, and the whole time, I had a crush on Ryō. For ten years, I've gotten by with just looking at him. I'd imagined way too many happy endings between him and me. Was I just too embarrassed? Was I just another dreamer? No! I'm a young girl in love! And now we're finally classmates in the third year of high school. Oh God, please give me the courage to take the next step!
A first love story by new wave manga creator Takara Akegami!
Akegami published the short manga in Shogakukan's Cheese! magazine in 2013. Shogakukan published the manga's one compiled book volume in June 2013.
