Katsu (Psychic Academy, The Vision of Escaflowne) has been drawing Futari H (Manga Sutra), which describes itself as a "love bible" or a "user's manual" for people in love, in Young Animal and Young Animal Arashi since 1997. The manga inspired two original video anime (OVA) series in 2002 and 2014, a live-action series in 2000, and three live-action films between 2011 and 2012. Hakusensha published the manga's 77th volume on December 26.
