Kaikan Phrase Shōjo Manga Gets New Game App in 2019

Event application teases fans of Takahide Ishii, Kennosuke Iwanaga, Ryō Kikuchi, Daiki Kobayashi, Ryō Takizawa, Arthur Lounsbery

Mayu Shinjo's Kaikan Phrase (Sensual Phrase) manga is inspiring a new spinoff sequel game app in 2019. An official website for the project opened and will reveal more information soon.

The project's staff will reveal the app's cast on August 8, and an event to reveal more information about the app will be held at Hit Studio Tokyo on September 15. However, the application for the event briefly included a listing of voice actors in a question regarding applicants' reasons for applying. The list included Takahide Ishii, Kennosuke Iwanaga, Ryō Kikuchi, Daiki Kobayashi, Ryō Takizawa, and Arthur Lounsbery. The list has since been removed from the question.

The manga's romance story centers on female high schoolstudent and aspiring lyricist Aine Yukimura and Lucifer rock band vocalist Sakuya Ōkouchi. One day, Sakuya runs into Aine with his car. Sakuya gives her a pass to a performance that night, and she hears him perform her lyrics that she left behind after the accident. The two fall for each other but encounter many obstacles as their relationship develops.

Shinjo's original Sensual Phrase manga ran in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi (Shōjo Comic) magazine from 1997 to 2000, and Viz Media published it in North America. A television anime adaptation ran from 1999 to 2000, and the Lucifer visual-kei band was formed in real life specifically to perform theme songs for the anime. The band broke up in 2003 but reunited several times after the disbanding.
