Kentarō Okamoto, Riri Sagara launched manga about 4 girls stuck on desert island in 2017

Some Japanese retailers are listing this year's 14th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine, with the magazine cover revealing that an anime adaptation of Kentarō Okamoto and Riri Sagara's Are You Lost? (Sōnan desuka?) manga has been green-lit. The issue will ship on March 4.

The magazine previously reported that the manga will have an important announcement on March 4.

Kodansha Comics began releasing the manga digitally in October, and it describes the story:

Because of a plane crash … starting today, we're spending the springtime of our lives on a desert island!! There's nothing here, so we have to make everything!! And eat everything!! (Ugh!) Check out our high-school-girl survival story of courage and knowledge. We're actually doing pretty well! Volume 1 includes: how to eat cicadas, how to build traps, a simple allergy test, how to eat hermit crabs, etc.

Okamoto and Sagara launched the manga in Young Magazine in January 2017, and it runs a new chapter in the magazine every other issue. Kodansha published the manga's third compiled book volume last October, and will ship the fourth volume on Wednesday. The manga inspired a stage play last November.

Okamoto's Sanzoku Diary manga, which follows the real-life story of how Okamoto became a hunter, inspired an original anime DVD bundled with the manga's sixth volume in June 2015. Okamoto launched the manga in Kodansha's Evening magazine in 2011, and ended it in August 2016 with seven volumes. The manga was nominated for the 6th Manga Taisho Award and the 38th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2014. Okamoto then launched the new Sanzoku Diary SS manga in the same magazine in December 2016.
