Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shōmei Shite Mita Manga Gets TV Anime

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga about scientists proving their love inspired live-action show in September, film on February 1

The official Comic Meteor page for Alifred Yamamoto's Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shōmei Shite Mita (Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It) romantic comedy manga announced on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of the manga has been green-lit. The anime's staff also opened a website for the anime, which will reveal more details about the project at a later date.

The manga centers on Ayame Himuro and Shinya Yukimura, two scientists who are in love with each other. They want to prove that their love can be scientifically proven, quantified, and expressed factually.

The manga launched on G-mode's Comic Meteor website in 2016, and Holp Shuppan published the manga's fourth compiled book volume last July. The manga's fifth volume will ship on Saturday. The manga has more than 600,000 copies in print.

A live-action television series of the manga premiered last September, and aired for four episodes. A live-action film will then open on February 1. Both adaptations feature the same cast, led by Nana Asakawa as Ayame Himuro and Shun Nishime as Shinya Yukimura. Other cast members include Yūka Yano, Tom Fujita, and Karin Ogino.
