The celebrated author of the Flowers of Evil manga, Shuzo Oshimi, launched his vampire romance follow-up Happiness in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine early last year. Bring it up to this week, and its third volume is closing in on its release date, as is volume 8 of his hikikomori series Inside Mari. To mark the occasion, the Japanese YouTuber duo of Avntis and MikiPon have shared the first episode of their own Happiness web mini-drama.
The fan-created story will continue on Kodansha’s bonbon TV, and a making-of video for episode 1 should pop up on YouTube on Friday. If you missed our review of the Flowers of Evil anime, you can read our thoughts on Oshimi’s saga of innocent perversion here.
