TV anime adaptation of supernatural comedy manga by Megane Mihoshi hits TV Tokyo on April 06, 2017
The official trailer is now available online for Renai Boukun, aka The Very Lovely Tyrant of Love, an upcoming TV anime based on the supernatural comedy manga by Megane Mihoshi about a meddlesome cupid and her magical "Kiss Note" book.
The story of Renai Boukun follows Guri, a half-Angel / half-Devil being who plays the role of Cupid with a magical book called a "Kiss Note" that causes couples to fall in love if they kiss after their names are written within its pages. Guri accidentally falls in love with one of her targets, an ordinary high school student named Seiji Aino whose normal life is thrown into chaos due to Guri's meddling.
The original Renai Boukun manga is serialized in Holp Shuppan's Comic Meteor shōnen manga magazine. The TV anime adaptation is directed by Atsushi Nigorikawa and features animation by EMT Squared. Renai Bouken will broadcast in Japan according to the following schedule:
- TV Tokyo: every Thursday during the 26:35 time slot beginning on April 06, 2017.
- BS Japan: every Saturday during the 24:30 time slot beginning on April 08, 2017.
- AT-X: every Saturday during the 23:30 time slot beginning on April 08, 2017.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late night programming of the previous day, so the 26:35 time slot on Thursday evening is actually at 2:35 AM JST on Friday morning.
