Love App Manga by REC's Q-taro Hanamizawa Returns This Spring
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's February issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine announced on Saturday that Q-taro Hanamizawa's Love App manga will return this spring as an online manga. Hanamizawa also announced that they have various other projects in the works, including a planned new series.
The love comedy story centers on a mysterious "Love App" that will appear when someone is worried about love. The app analyzes lots of data, and no matter how impossible the object of your desire seems, the "greatest love app ever" will help that person fall in love with you.
Anime studio SHAFT produced a 10-episode television anime of Hanamizawa's previous series REC in 2006. In 2011, Hanamizawa's Hanamizawa Q-taro Jisenshū Hana-Hiyori erotic short story collection was on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's list of manga titles that would be restricted under Tokyo's revised Youth Healthy Development Ordinance, which expanded the number of manga and anime that must not be sold or rented to people under the age of 18. The manga was ultimately not formally restricted.
