On 10/02/1998, TV-Tokyo started Hideaki Anno's New Anime "Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" at last. A lot of anime fans in Japan have been looking forward to seeing it for a long time. These two years Hideaki Anno made real performance films rather than anime.
This work is his new age anime which is different from his former works.

. 5. Fool Hakusensha

Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou is a title of serial cartoon for girls on monthly magazine "LaLa" published by Hakusensha.
Hakusensha is a famous publisher in Japan. It maily publishes comic magazines and comic books. Its magazine titles are "Hana To Yume (Flower and Dream)", "LaLa" and "Young Animal." Hana To Yume and LaLa are made for little girls. On the other hand, Young Animal is for male adults.

As you know, "Hana To Yume" is famous for "Glass No Kamen" "Sukeban-Deka" "Patariro" "Boku No Chikyu Wo Mamotte" and "Doubutsu No Oisha-san." "LaLa" is famous for "Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou (His and Her Matters)" "Kaguya-hime" and "Yakumo Tatsu." "Young Animal" is famous for "Momoiro Sisters (Pink sisters)" "Futari Ecchi" and "Berserk."

As you know, Glass No Kamen was broadcast by TV-Asahi (ANB) in 1998 as performance films.
Momoiro Sisters were broadcast by TBS (Tokyo) in September 1998 as animation.
This time Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou was broadcast by TV-Tokyo in October 1998 as animation.

This time Hakusensha made a commercial film of "LaLa." As you know, Kodansha has broadcast a commercial film of "Nakayoshi" in "Magic Knight Rayearth" and "Cyber Team in Akihabara." Shueisha has broadcast a commercial film of "Ribbon" in "Kodomo No Omocha" and "Gokinjo Monogatari."

However Hakusensha had not promoted "LaLa" on TV yet.
Perhaps Hakusensha thinks LaLa will get popular because Anno is very much popular.
In fact, Hakusensha published an extra issue of LaLa for "Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" in September 1998. In the extra issue, Hakusensha promoted the Anno's new title.

6. Original Cartoon

Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou is called "Kare-Kano." Ms Masami Tsuda draws the original cartoon. The title has not ended yet. Six volumes are already published.
Masami Tsuda's style is like Doujinshi comic book. She is good at expressing her character's inside.
As you know, Hideaki Anno has expressed his own inside, say, his Shinji Ikari.
Hideaki Anno tried to express high school student insides.
