Haruno Aoyama's My Little Love Story manga also licensed

Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo announced on Thursday that it has licensed Manatsu Suzuki's Connect, Mikayo Nakae's Rahasia Anak (Shōgakusei no Himitsu), and Haruno Aoyama's My Little Love Story (Koi Suru Little) manga.

Elex Media describes Connect:

Although his father is a composer, and his mother a concert pianist, Wakana held no love for classical music. Instead, the music he likes accompanies characters and stories. He was a fan of soundtrack music, especially soundtracks for anime and games. But he had never dreamed of composing his own pieces... until one day he met his classmate, who was also a comic writer. It was then that the dream finally began to hatch.

Suzuki launched the manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in December 2015. Shueisha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on July 19.

Suzuki drew the Selector Infected Wixoss -peeping analyze- manga in Ultra Jump from July 2014 to May 2015. Suzuki later drew the original character designs for the Lostorage conflated WIXOSS anime.

Elex Media describes Rahasia Anak:

There are many firsts when you are a child. The first time your heart pounds fast when you see your childhood friend, when it didn't do so before. The first changes in your body. Friendships and relationships that all too sudden become more complicated. The times when you don't want to talk to anyone, but it feels too hard to bear alone. This is the story of elementary school children.

Nakae launched the manga in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine in October 2012 as an irregular serialization, and Kodansha published the first compiled book volume for the manga in April 2013. Nakae continued the manga as a regular serialization in the magazine in July 2013, and ended it in November 2016. Kodansha published 10 compiled book volumes for the manga.

Elex Media describes My Little Love Story:

Chiharu Mito, a first-year high school student and a member of the school track team, was very fond of running. She meets Yuki, a fellow freshman, and a member of the basketball team. Unexpectedly, Yuki turned out to be an easy guy to talk to, serious about love, and very straightforward. In all honesty, Mito fell in love with him. But Mito has never been in a relationship before. Will she be able to get over her initial feelings?

Aoyama launched the manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine in August 2015, and ended it in November of the same year. Shueisha published one compiled book volume for the manga.
