The official Twitter of manga creator Kappi announced an anime adaptation of his Hidarikiki no Eren (Eren the Southpaw) web manga on Friday.

Kappi began drawing the ensemble drama on the cakes web manga service in March 2016 and ended it in 63 chapters in September 2017. Kappi launched a remake version with illustrations by nifuni in Shounen Jump+ in October 2017 and ended on October 8. Shueisha shipped the 23rd and 24th volumes on Friday, the latter being the final. Hidarikiki no Eren was adapted into a 10-episode live-action television drama in Japan in October 2019.

Synopsis
Asakura Koichi works as a designer at an advertising agency. Even though he works very hard, he does not receive recognition at his job. He is frustrated by his circumstances and he decides to visit a place from his school days, involving Yamagishi Eren.

Meanwhile, Yamagishi Eren has the nickname "Hidarikiki" ("The Southpaw") and is a painter in New York. She is gifted as a painter, but due to her genius-like talent, she suffers. (Source: MyDramaList, edited)

Maybe if enough people contact mangaplus and request a similpub of this series they will do it since it is a jump+ series

I hope so. It is always a good tendency to adapt the whole source if it was completely released already.

Not always it is true. Such people are pretty rare, that is why. Also right brain semisphere works, not left, like in the majority of people. They are pretty creative.

Looks nice and glad its something different but not sure what is it about from that synopsis. Some guy is tired of work so decides to visit his childhood friend?

Ok. And then? This is looking like another of those works that confuses having a premise - not much of one, at that - for a plot. Moving on, then.
