My Love Story!! Artist Aruko Launches New Manga with Wataru Hinekure

"Slapstick love triangle" manga launches on June 13

The June issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret (Betsuma) magazine revealed on Monday that artist Aruko will launch a new manga with Wataru Hinekure titled Kieta Hatsukoi (Faded First Love) in the magazine's July issue on June 13. The manga's first chapter will have a color page and 35 total pages.

The "way-too-pure slapstick love triangle" manga follows high school students who are hardworking but a bit dumb.

Aruko and Kazune Kawahara first debuted the original 100-page version of the romantic comedy shōjo manga series My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari!!) in an issue of Bessatsu Margaret Sister in October 2011, and the manga then returned in Bessatsu Margaret as a serialized work. The manga ended in July 2016. Viz Media published all 13 volumes of the manga in North America.

A television anime adaptation debuted in April 2015, and a live-action film adaptation opened in October 2015. Sentai Filmworks released the anime series on home video with an English dub.

Aruko's five-volume Yasuko and Kenji manga inspired a live-action television series in 2008. The now-defunct JManga service released part of the manga digitally in English.
