Doukyusei -Classmates- Boys-Love Manga Gets New Series
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Asumiko Nakamura launched a new manga series titled blanc in the 67th issue of Akaneshinsha's Opera magazine on Wednesday. The manga is the latest story that follows the lives of Rihito Sajō and Hikaru Kusakabe, the protagonists of Nakamura's Dōkyūsei (Classmates) boys-love manga.
In the new manga, Kusakabe is working to achieve his dream, while Sajō is studying in university. Both live their lives separately.
Nakamura published the original manga in Japan in 2006 in one compiled volume. The series was followed by the spinoff Sora to Hara and sequels Sotsugyōsei (Graduates) and O.B.. Digital Manga Guild has licensed Dōkyūsei and Sotsugyōsei in English.
A-1 Pictures produced an anime film adaptation of the manga that opened in Japan in February 2016. It opened at #9 in the Japanese box office, and eventually earned 158,295,100 yen (about US$1,393,000) by March of that year.
