The September issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Dragon Age magazine published the final chapter of Takeshi Moriki‘s manga adaptation of Fumiaki Maruto and Kurehito Misaki‘s How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend light novel on Tuesday. Moriki will launch a sequel manga titled Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata Girls Side in the magazine’s next issue in September.
Yen Press publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Aspiring visual-novel game designer Aki Tomoya thinks he’s just met his dream girl, but reality comes crashing down when he finds out that this girl is none other than his beautiful but boring classmate Megumi Kato! Fueled by a desire to make Megumi the heroine of his dating sim game, he recruits two more beauties–Eriri, his artistic childhood friend, and Utaha, a genius writing prodigy–to form Blessing Software. The road to making a dating sim game is full of fun and romance–especially when life begins to imitate art!
The manga adapts Maruto and Misaki’s light novel series of the same name. The novel series’ 10th volume shipped on July 25. Moriki launched the manga in Monthly Dragon Age in 2013. Kadokawa published the manga’s seventh compiled book volume on June 9. Yen Press published the third volume on July 26.
The light novel series inspired a television anime series, which premiered in January 2015, with a sequel slated for April 2017. Aniplex of America released the series on two Blu-ray Disc volumes in March and May. The novels also inspired two other manga series titled Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata ~egoistic-lily~ and Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata: Koi-suru Metronome. The former ended in 2014, while the latter is ongoing, with the sixth volume released in Japan on June 19.
