posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Indonesian publisher M&C! announced on Monday that it has licensed Kana Watanabe's Flower and Thunderbolt (Hana to Rakurai) manga. The company will release both volumes simultaneously on November 15.
The story centers on Umiho, a high school girl who has a crush on schoolmate Namose, a boy from a different class whom Umiho manages to meet through an integrated math class. Because Namose is often busy with club work, he always uses Umiho's notes to study, and she falls in love with him after spending time together. But after Namose drops out of the class due to bad grades and they are separated, Umiho is saddened. At that point, she meets and befriends Yachiyo, a girl who supports Umiho in pursuing a relationship with Namose.
Watanabe launched the manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine in 2012, and ended it in 2013. Shueisha published two compiled book volumes for the manga.
