Ichijinsha streamed a promotional video on Thursday for the sixth volume of Fujita’s Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku (Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii) manga, revealing that the manga is receiving a live-action film!
A commemorative image for the announcement was also drawn by Fujita:
The manga’s sixth volume will be shipped on the 31st of July. The video also reveals that the manga has 7 million copies in print (including digital sales).
The manga inspired an 11-episode television anime adaptation that premiered on April 12th this year, and the anime streamed on Amazon Prime Video within and outside of Japan.
The manga’s story centers around the awkward romantic comedy between Narumi, a female office worker who hides her fujoshi lifestyle, and Hirotaka, a handsome and capable company man who is also a closeted game otaku.
The manga first launched on the image sharing website ‘pixiv’ in 2014. In November 2015, the manga moved to Ichijinsha’s Comic POOL digital manga magazine. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English, and has released the second omnibus volume on the 12th of June.
