Anime, live-action projects based on Moriko Mori, Cota Tomimura manga both premiere in April 2020

Kodansha announced on Monday that Moriko Mori and Cota Tomimura's Gal to Kyōryū (The Gal and the Dinosaur) manga is inspiring both an anime and a live-action project that will both premiere in April 2020.

The manga's story begins when a gyaru named Kaede picks up a dinosaur and begins living with it in her room. The dinosaur eats human food, watches TV, and even enjoys being fashionable.

Mori and Tomimura, a married couple, launched the manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine last October. Kodansha published the manga's first compiled book volume on April 5, and will publish the second volume on Friday.

Tomimura is the creator of several manga series including the four-panel essay manga Bokutachi LGBT (We are LGBT) and Jitsuroku! Tō-san Densetsu (Reality! Dad's Legend).

Mori creates the Sayonara, High School (Good—by, High School) manga that currently runs on Akita Publishing's Manga Cross website.
