Val x Love Manga Gets TV Anime

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Series about boy who builds relationships with Valkyries to save world debuted in 2015

The June issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine revealed on Saturday that Ryousuke Asakura's Val x Love (Ikusa x Koi) manga will receive a television anime adaptation. An official website for the anime also launched and revealed a teaser visual.

Yen Press is publishing the manga in English, and it released the fifth volume on February 19. The company describes the first volume:

Gotta flirt to save the world!!

High schooler Takuma Akutsu is terrified of human contact and just wants to live a quite life. Too bad he doesn't have a choice in the matter when nine Valkyrie sisters come barging into his home! They've tasked him with raising their level to fight off the monsters threatening humanity--and how will he do that, exactly...? By gettin' down & dirty to the max!!!

Asakura launched the manga in the magazine in December 2015, and the seventh compiled book volume shipped on Saturday. The manga has 450,000 copies in print.

Update: Visual added.
