Otomen - Love Chick - Netflix
Love Chick (ラブチック, Rabuchikku) is a fictional shōjo manga by Jewel Sachihana that runs in the fictional manga magazine Hana to Mame (a parody of Hana to Yume). Juta Tachibana bases its story on the relationship between Asuka and Ryo, with the lead characters even sharing names pronounced the same but applied to the opposite genders. However, Asuka's name in Love Chick is written in katakana rather than the kanji used for Asuka's name in Otomen, and Ryo's name is written in kanji rather than in hiragana name in Otomen. Note: Querbeet's fansub of the live-action calls this fictional manga “Love-Tic”, which is what the actors sound like they are saying. Also, in the French version, the manga's called Love Tic.
