Love App Manga by REC’s Q-taro Hanamizawa Returns This Spring

This year’s February issue of Shogakukan’s Monthly Sunday GXmagazine announced on Saturday that Q-taro Hanamizawa’s Love Appmanga will return this spring as an online manga. Hanamizawa also announced that they have various other projects in the works, including a planned new series.

Love App ended in the same issue of the magazine. Hanamizawa launched the romantic comedy series last March. Shogakukanpublished the manga’s first volume on September 19.

The love comedy story centers on a mysterious “Love App” that will appear when someone is worried about love. The app analyzes lots of data, and no matter how impossible the object of your desire seems, the “greatest love app ever” will help that person fall in love with you.

Anime studio SHAFT produced a 10-episode television anime of Hanamizawa’s previous series REC in 2006. In 2011, Hanamizawa’s Hanamizawa Q-taro JisenshÅ« Hana-Hiyori erotic short story collection was on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s list of manga titles that would be restricted under Tokyo’s revised Youth Healthy Development Ordinance, which expanded the number of manga and anime that must not be sold or rented to people under the age of 18. The manga was ultimately not formally restricted.
