LDK Manga Gets New 1-Shot Sequel
posted on by Karen Ressler
The April issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine will publish a new bonus chapter for Ayu Watanabe's LDK shōjo manga on March 13. The story takes place after the manga's final chapter, with Aoi and Shūsei still living together after graduation. It also follows Shūsei's cousin Reon in America.
The manga is inspiring a new live-action film titled LDK Hitotsu Yane no Shita, "Suki" ga Futatsu (Two Loves Under One Roof), which will open on March 21. The film will introduce Reon as a new character.
Watanabe launched the original manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2009, and ended it in August 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 24th and final volume in October 2017.
Aoi Nishimori is a high school girl who lives alone in her own apartment, but to her surprise, she discovers that the prince of her school, Shusei Kugayama, has moved in next door! To add to this, a series of crazy happenings result in the two living together under a single roof! Shusei is known to be a heartless guy and Aoi particularly hates him after he coldly rejected her best friend, so a life of cohabitation seems like a recipe for disaster. And yet, Aoi somehow can't stop her heart from pounding when she's with Shusei...
The manga previously inspired a live-action film in April 2014.
