After announcing their licensing of Momokyun Sword, Sentai Filmworks has announced that they have picked up something on the other end of the spectrum in the form of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, or as they are now calling it Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun. This romantic comedy is being directed by Mitsue Yamazaki while the animation is being handled by Dogakobo.
Similar to their last announcement, Sentai Filmworks is planning on giving Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun a home video release sometime in the future and for those who are unfamiliar with the series, the company describes it as follows:
Love is the spirit that motivates an artist’s journey. Or, rather, it can and should be. Of course, for mangaka artist Nozaki… he’s clueless when it comes to those special feelings of love coming from his own classmate. It’s the age-old tale: the girl’s into a guy that barely knows they exist. And it’s no different for Sakura.
While all she can think about is him, all he cares about is the publication deadline looming over his head. Unfortunately, this all came about because Sakura didn’t share her true feelings with Nozaki. This all leads to a huge misunderstanding – and, as a result, Sakura becoming his assistant. Little did she know, but she now works for one of her favorite mangakas. Only she’s a he! And that’s the strange part; Nozaki is the creator of the popular shojo manga, Let’s Have a Romance!, under the alias of Yumeno Sakiko.
So, how could such a stubborn numbskull such as Nozaki be so in touch with a girl’s wants and needs to create such inspiring stories that Sakura loves? And will she spoil their working relationship to finally admit how she really feels about him? Time can only tell as this rom-com tale unfolds in Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun!
