“Domestic Girlfriend” Manga Gets Anime Adaptation


Before you ask: yep, it’s another “family” show.

Earlier today, news broke that Kei Sasuga’s Domestic Girlfriend (Domestic na Kanojo) manga will get an anime adaptation. A teaser visual for the project was released, which features the main cast, trapped in a sphere of water.

 Domestic Girlfriend Anime Visual

Domestic Girlfriend launched in the pages of Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in July 2014. To date, 17 volumes have been released, with volume 18 slated to ship to retailers on July 14.

Kodansha Comics currently holds the rights to the title in North America, and describes it as:

High schooler Natsuo is hopelessly in love with his cheerful and popular teacher, Hina. However, one day at a mixer, he meets a moody girl by the name of Rui and ends up sleeping with her. Soon after, his father announces that he’s getting remarried to a woman with two daughters of her own. And who shows up in tow, other than both Hina and Rui?! Natsuo’s outrageous new life starts now!
