Fans of Junta Shima’s manga may be disappointed that his Murai in Love series ended on June 13, but the characters created by Shima will live on in a newly announced anime adaptation. The official Twitter account for the manga announced the adaptation today saying “Murai&Friends will return in The animation[sic].”





It wasn’t confirmed what format the Murai in Love anime will be, nor when it’ll release or staff and cast members. The original manga has already inspired a live-action TV drama that is currently airing in Japan every Tuesday night on TBS’s “Dreama Stream” programming block.

Kodansha publishes Murai in Love in Japan, with the seventh and final volume released today in Japan. The romantic comedy tale tells a story between Tanaka, a high school teacher who loves otome games, and Murai, a high school boy who is in love with Tanaka. Tanaka, who has never been involved in a real-life romance, is confessed to by Murai but rejects his confession. On the next day, Murai transforms himself into the exact likeness of Tanaka’s favorite character from her favorite otome game.
