The Japanese manga Murai in Love (Murai no Koi) is getting an anime adaptation, as announced by the manga’s official Twitter account. The manga is written and illustrated by Junta Shima. No information about the staff and cast has been announced as of this moment.
Shima first launched the manga in LINE’s manga service under Kadokawa’s Gene Line label in June 2018. An eight-episode television drama adaptation was released on TBS and aired from April 6 to May 25 of this year.

Murai in Love manga/anime follows Murai, who is a shy high schooler. Often invisible, he has long hair and is not someone you would consider exceptionally beautiful. One day, he confesses to a girl he loves, but she turns him down because she only has eyes for her games. However, the next morning Murai wakes up and decides to change things up. He shows up looking like a completely different person, with short and dyed hair, with clothes resembling Tanaka’s favorite character. All thing to win Tanaka over – but will he succeed?
