Junjou Romantica: Pure Romance (純情ロマンチカ/ピュア ロマンス, Junjō Romanchika, lit. "Pure-Hearted Romantica"), stylized as Junjou Romantica ~Pure Romance~, is a yaoi series by Shungiku Nakamura. It focuses on three storylines; the main couple, which comprises the bulk of the books, and two other male couples that provide ongoing side stories (Junjo Egoist and Junjo Terrorist). It has expanded into several cd-dramas, a manga series running in Asuka Ciel, a light novel series titled "Junai Romantica" running in The Ruby magazine and a 24-episode anime series. Third season of the anime is announced to be in the work and is scheduled to air on July 2015.
Shungiku Nakamura has written a spin-off to Junjou Romantica titled Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi (lit. "The Best First Love in the World") focusing on a shōjo manga editor and his first love, which was also animated by Studio Deen in 2011.
Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!
Romantica: Misaki is struggling to prepare for his college entrance exams, so his brother arranges for a private tutor. But Misaki's nightmare is just beginning when his tutor, Usami, comes on to him! How will Misaki ever manage to pass his exam? And why does he feel so mysteriously drawn to Usami?
Egoist: Just when Kamijou's life is at its lowest, he has a chance meeting with a man who never lets anything hold him back: Nowaki. His name means "typhoon," and he's about to take Kamijou on a whirlwind ride that will turn everything upside-down.
Terrorist: Miyagi always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile, but even he has problems, although he doesn't let them show. Foremost is Shinobu, a relentless young man who's adamant that they're destined to be together.
