A scan from the 19th issue of Young Animal magazine, to be released on September 25, has announced that 3-gatsu no Lion will receive a TV anime adaptation as well as a live-action movie. Previously, a music video collaborated with the band Bump of Chicken was released on December 8.

The manga is both written and illustrated by Chika Umino, who is known for her work with Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover). 3-gatsu no Lion has been serialized since July 2007 and has 10 volumes in print. Its 11th volume will be published on September 25.

The series has won both the Manga Taisho Award in 2011 and the 35th Kodansha Manga Award under the general manga category. Recently, the series charted #29 in Oricon's yearly rankings, selling a total of 1,060,179 copies.

Wow, the manga won 2 awards? Must be really good.

Not familiar with this one but Hachimitsu to Clover was great so looking forward to it.

This sounds interesting, but I am wary about it being by the person who did Honey and Clover, as I didn't exactly enjoy most of that and felt that it was massively overrated. Hopefully this doesn't have that same issue.

Great! Was planning on reading it after watching the music video and also wondered if they will ever make an anime adaptation of it. How happy I am now that they really will make one.

I've been expecting that. What surprised me was that it took so long to happen. Given the progress of the manga, I would have expected this about four years ago.

I'm actually quite interested to hear the reasons why Honey and Clover is overrated.

I thought the author had no plans of animating the manga if the source (manga) wasn't finished yet. Or maybe it was from a different "hit" manga, which I totally forgot the name.

Glad to have it animated tho.

The manga is on my PTR list for quite a long time now. I probably wait for the anime and decide if I will read it with the manga.

Okay so i was planning to read this manga since...2 years ago, but i was delaying reading it every time, since i had this small hope inside me that this gets anime so i can watch it first.Why? because judging by synopsis/info/music videos/cms for it i've seen, i think that this series can work REALLY well as anime, maybe even better than actual manga (which i will read right after anime finishes so i can see the difference).As a big fan of Honey and Clover anime i have big expectations and i'm HYPING AF.It's finally time.

From the mangaka of Honey & Clover?
It's a must watch then :D
H & C was done by J.C. Staff and it was a masterpiece adaptation.
Let's pray they do it too!!

It's like everything I've been planning on reading lately is getting an adaptation.
This is good news, this manga seems really good and it's won some awards as well. Hopefully the adaptation is fine. Seems perfect for noitaminA.

It's been long overdue, though. It's pretty damn popular in Japan, and it's only now getting an adaptation?

IM FUCKING SCREAMING

I love this series and it's such a nice SOL.
I hope Natsuki Hanae gets the main role. I always imagined his voice when reading it.

hachi-clo's is shoujo and 3gatsu is seinen which indeed having mostly male fanbase dispite shoujo ish artstyle,so it does not matter if you liked hachi clo or not

No, HnC is Josei. I've read both manga and they don't differ much in feeling and atmosphere. Main difference is that 3gatsu has no romance so far.

No, it's serialized in Young Animal so that makes it a seinen.
