With the North American release out a few years ago from Sentai Filmworks, Netflix previously revealed that they’ll be bringing out Monthly Girls’ Nokzaki on their platform as well. With specific details to come in terms of languages and subtitle options, Netflix had it set for a February 1st, 2020 debut and you can find the series page here. That, unfortunately, did not trigger and go live leaving fans wondering when and if it would actually happen. Netflix recently updated the page to give it a May 1st, 2020 debut and that did hit and go live, which means we now know what language options there are. This one gets us a bit more than the usual bilingual home video release as we get the original Japanese language and the English dub that Sentai produced but we also get a Spanish dub and a Brazilian Portuguese dub. Subtitles come with English, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese options.
Check out our review of the North American collector’s edition here.
The summer 2014 anime series, based on the manga by Izumi Tsubaki (creator of Oresama Teacher), is animated by Dogakobo. It’s directed by Mitsue Yamazaki based on scripts and composition by Yoshiko Nakamura and character designs by Junichiro Taniguchi. The original four-panel web manga began in the summer of 2011 and is ongoing with seven published volumes to date.
Plot concept: A confession gone awry has resulted with Chiyo Sakura as the newest assistant to Umetaro Nozaki. Known in the publishing world under the alias Yumeno Sakiko, Nozaki is the creator of the ever-popular shoujo manga, Let’s Have a Romance!
Despite his renowned skills as a manga artist, Nozaki is completely clueless in the art of real life romance. Relying heavily on the lives of his motley group of assistants to be his source of inspiration, Nozaki’s understanding of love is as skewed as the lives of his characters. Can Sakura properly convey her feelings to her long time crush or will she forever be relegated to assistant?
