A Condition Called Love Anime Announced For 2024 With Teaser Visual


A TV anime adaptation of Megumi Morino’s A Condition Called Love (Hananoi-kun to Koi no Yamai) manga is in the works and is set for a 2024 premiere. A teaser visual depicting heroine Hotaru Hinase leaping into the arms of male protagonist Saki Hananoi has been released.


The Kodansha-published manga has been serialized in Dessert since 2017 and will release its 13th tankoubon volume on June 13 of this year. Kodansha USA describes plot as:

Hotaru is a 16-year-old high school first-year who has always been ambivalent about love, preferring instead to have a lively life with her family and friends. So when she sees her schoolmate, Hananoi-kun, sitting in the snow after a messy, public breakup, she thinks nothing of offering to share her umbrella. But when he asks her out in the middle of her classroom the next day, she can’t help but feel that her life is about to change in a big way…

Morino released an illustration to commemorate the anime’s announcement.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
