It was announced that Miyuki Abe's BL manga Super Lovers will be getting an anime adaptation. The announcement was made on a flyer for the June 2015 issue of Kadokawa's Ciel magazine, included in the reprint of √W.P.B.'s first manga volume. The format for the anime is still unknown.

Synopsis
While spending summer with his mother, Haru meets Ren, a boy newly adopted by his mother. Getting along with Ren isn't easy as Haru's goal is to "civilize" him by the time summer ends. Their relationship slowly improves as Haru spends more time with Ren, and in return Ren steadily warms up to him. Can they really become a "family" at the end of summer?! (Source: Bliss)

The flyer also announced that the magazine will include a bonus DVD with the latest PV for Junjou Romantica, whose third anime adaptation will begin in Summer 2015.

Actually, Murase Ayumu (Hinata from Haikyuu) would be the perfect choice for Ren if the drama cd cast does not reprise their roles (The Hakkenden Drama CD cast is different from the anime cast)

Murase is Japanese-American and speaks English fluently and there are instances where Ren speaks English in the manga so it's a perfect match.


I second this. Ayumu for Ren!
Though I like Fukuyama Jun and Ono Daisuke as the twins, mostly likely Drama CD cast will not reprise their roles

I've read this till the last update. So those that got disturbed by the age gap, they only kiss because the seme waits for the uke to turn 18. Though even if he turns 18 the seme will get older lol. The uke is somewhat a kuudere and it has a slow pacing that I think suited it perfectly. It's a great manga IMO so I'm really happy because this is one of my favorites. It's time they stop disappointing BL fans with short OVAs and start doing full series. Even if it's one cour I'm sure the fujoshis would be delighted.

Yaiy! Great news :3

Yes! There really needs to be more BL adaptions.

Omg, I never thought this would get adapted.. this is one of my favorite Yaoi manga, it's actually plot orientated.

O~h, when I saw the cover in the news post, I recognised the art style~ I think this one has been in my PTR for a long while, but apparently it still isn't finished yet... (ノ∀`) Although it will seemingly still take time until I'll get to this title, in this case I appreciate an anime instead of maybe a live action, because then the adaption could at least (try to) make use of the art, which I'm fond of. (Then again, they may be more likely to show age gaps in animated format than with real people...) I'm not getting my hopes up for a TV anime, though.
By the way, didn't this one and the of course already mentioned honto yajuu always make up the titles that were brought up most often for a potential anime adaption on MAL? I guess that means one more to go... ヽ(´ー`)ノ and more, and more...

I second this, not like they have any sex scenes yet.

How unexcpected, but I like the manga a lot so I'm definitely looking forward to this!

I can never know with yaoi, because yaoi fans generally have the most garbage of taste.

Is this worth it? Or is it another "characters act like 8 year old little girls but theres a sex scene so we pretend its mature and deep" waste of time?



If i'm not mistaken, there hasn't been any sex scenes in the manga yet, it seems to be more of a shounen ai. As a matter of fact there hasn't been much kissing either. I don't know, there isn't anything special about the story. There are some really sweet moments and the artwork is absolutely beautiful though, go for it.

There have been a few sexual scenes but they haven't gone all the way. And it didn't happen until Ren got older.

Oh god I readed the first part of this manga like 1000 years ago.
Good news I guess.

I hope Ren get female voice actor, and hope they change his design and make him look more feminine

no please no ;_; don't want this to be like kuroshitsuji

shota seiyuu are good enough! i'm probably off but yonaga tsubasa, or nobuhiko okamoto could work well

there's already a drama cd so they could potentially use that
海棠晴:森川智之 ( Haru - Morikawa Toshiyuki )
海棠零:神谷浩史 ( Ren - Kamiya Hiroshi )
