The issue of Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Thursday that writer Wataru Hinekure and artist Aruko’s collaboration manga is My Love Mix-Up! The manga (Kieta Hatsukoi) that is getting a live-action adaptation will premiere on television in October. The magazine will reveal the cast and other details at a later date.
Viz Media revealed in February that they will be releasing the manga. The company describes the series:
Aoki has a crush on Hashimoto, the girl sitting next to him in class. But he despairs when he borrows her eraser and finds her writing another boy’s name — Ida — on it. To make matters even more confusing, Ida sees Aoki holding that eraser and thinks that Aoki has a crush on him!
Viz Media will release the first volume on October 5.
Aruko and Hinekure launched the manga in June 2019. Shueisha publishes the manga’s fifth volume on the 25th, and will publish the sixth volume on the 25th. A short spinoff titled Kieta Hatsukoi: Shōgekijō (Faded First Love: Small) Theater) premiered in the August issue of Bessatsu Margaret on July 13.
Aruko and Kazune Kawahara launch the 100-page original version of the romantic comedy shoujo manga series My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari!!) in an issue of Bessatsu Margaret Sister in October 2011, and the manga later returned in Bessatsu Margaret as a serialized work. The manga ended in July 2016. Viz Media published all 13 volumes of the manga in North America.
A television anime adaptation debuted in April 2015, and a live film adaptation debuted in October 2015. Sentai Filmworks released the anime series on home video with an English dub.
