We get an anime adaptation of a novel called Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Is It Yes, No, or Somewhere in Between?) by Michi Ichiho
The wraparound jacket band on OFF AIR2 Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka, a collection of writings related to Michi Ichiho's Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Is It Yes, No, or Somewhere in Between?) boys-love light novel series, announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of the series is in the works. The announcement did not reveal the anime's format.
The novels' story follows Kei Kunieda, a young and popular TV announcer who maintains a perfect facade in his professional life, but privately curses everyone around him as incompetent fools. However, a certain circumstance allows animation writer Ushio Tsuzuki to discover Kei's more acerbic side.
Ichiho launched the novel series with illustrations by Lala Takemiya in November 2014, and Shinshokan published the series' third volume in 2016. The series' first "OFF AIR" spinoff volume debuted in August 2017.
The series ranked #1 in the novel category of Next BOOKS's Kono BL ga Yabai! list in 2016, #2 in 2017, #1 in 2018, and #1 in 2019. The series also ranked #3 in the light novel category of the Yomiuri Shimbun's Sugoi Japan Awards in 2017.
The February 2020 issue of Shogakukan's Flowers magazine revealed on Saturday that Setona Mizushiro's The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese (Kyūso wa Cheese no Yume o Miru) will get a new bonus chapter in the magazine's next issue on January 28. The chapter, titled "Hummingbird Rhapsody," will be about an event from Imagase's past. The chapter will have 31 pages, including color pages.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both Mizushiro's The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese manga and the The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice sequel manga, and it describes the former's story:
Ootomo Kyoichi, a weak-willed salaryman in a troubled marriage, is cheating on his wife. To his surprise, his wife hires a private eye to expose his affair–and the private eye is none other than Imagase, an underclassman Kyoichi knew in college. Imagase explains that he's gay and always had a crush on Kyoichi, so he offers to hide the infidelity in exchange for the make-out session he'd always fantasized about back in college. Kyoichi reluctantly agrees, thinking it will save his marriage, but things with Imagase soon spiral out of control.
Shogakukan published the first single-volume manga in 2006 under its Judy Comics imprint. (Shogakukan's Judy magazine for adult women serialized from 1983 to 2008.) The manga already spawned a drama CD starring Yūichi Nakamura and Koji Yusa. The sequel shipped in 2009. Seven Seas Entertainment released The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese on November 26, and it will release The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice on February 11.
The manga are inspiring a film adaptation that will open in the first half of 2020. Isao Yukisada is directing the film, with a script by Anne Horiizumi.
Manga artist Hatoko Machiya published a statement on Twitter on Monday asking fans to not purchase unofficial English versions of her work. Machiya referred to the scans of her work online as "illegally translated" and reminded readers that she is "not in a financial position to offer my work free-of-charge..."
Machiya's manga works include Orokamono Wangel Night, Chotto Matte yo Hanaya-san, and Koi to wa Yobenai. Her series have run in Taiyo Tosho's Craft and ihr HertZ and Libre Shuppan's Be x Boy Gold and Magazine Be x Boy magazines.
Machiya is not the first artist to attempt to deter readers from using unofficial scans. Gangsta. manga creator Kohsuke made a similar statement in October. Multiple creators issued supportive comments after pirate manga site Mangamura was shut down last year.
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
