posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The April issue of Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine is revealing on Thursday that Tomiyaki Kagisora's Happy Sugar Life manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation. The anime will premiere on MBS and other networks in July.
The psychological horror manga's story centers on a beautiful high school girl named Satō Matsuzaka, who believes she has finally found the meaning of love when she begins living with a younger girl. Previously, Satō never refused the advances of any guy around her, but that changes when she meets the girl Shio. The background and age of the mysterious girl are unclear. When Satō is with Shio, she experiences a very sweet feeling, which she understands as love. In order to protect that feeling, Satō is willing to do anything, even if it means committing murder.
Kagisora launched the manga in the magazine in 2015. Square Enix published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on August 22, and the seventh volume will ship on Thursday.
Kagisora's other series include the manga adaptation of the Tari Tari anime, Kamiyome, and Fantasista Doll ~Prelude Kagami~.
