Kodansha’s August issue of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine announced on Thursday that Mari Okada and Nao Emoto’s O Maidens in Your Savage Season (Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo) manga is inspiring a live-action television series.
The manga will also receive two new side-story chapters that will debut in the magazine’s next two issues in both August and September.
Kodansha Comics describes the story as:
The girls in a high school literature club do a little icebreaker to get to know each other: answering the question, “What’s one thing you want to do before you die?” One of the girls blurts out, “Sex.” Little do they know, the whirlwind unleashed by that word pushes each of these girls, with different backgrounds and personalities, onto their own clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths toward adulthood.– Kodansha Comic
The manga actually inspired a television anime adaptation that made its debut in July of 2019. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime and streamed it on HIDIVE, and it also streamed an English-dubbed version just last December. Okada supervises the script for the anime. Before her work the anime adaptation, she has written and overseen scripts for television anime such as Toradora!, A Lull in the Sea, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Kiznaiver, and Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan. She made her directorial debut with her Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms anime film, and most recently penned the scripts to the films Her Blue Sky and A Whisker Away (which we’ve reviewed in another article).
Okada and Emoto launched the manga in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in December 2016, and ended it last September. Kodansha published the manga’s eighth and final compiled book volume last October. The volume also included an extra epilogue chapter. The title is the manga series debut of screenwriter Okada.
