Manga de Wakaru Shinryou Naika Anime Adaptation Announced

In last week’s issue of Shonen Gahosha’s Young King magazine, it was announced that Yuu Yuuki and Sou’s manga Manga de Wakaru Shinryou Naika (Comical Psychosomatic Medicine) will be receiving an anime adaptation for 2015, titled Anime de Wakaru Shinryou Naika. Additionally, the anime’s official website is now online and has released the first visual:


Yuu Yuuki himself is an actual psychiatrist using his experience and history in the field for the series. It is a comedy manga that focuses on the various ways the doctors and nurses explain mental disorders in a light hearted yet educational way. The series itself received a drama CD adaptation last year, which included:

  • Wataru Hatano (Gajeel Redfox from Fairy Tail) voicing as main character Ryou
  • Ai Kayano (Menma from AnoHana) who voiced his assistant Asuna
  • Miho Arakawa (Sumireko Hanabusa in Akuma no Riddle) as Iyashi
  • Chiaki Omigawa (Elena Peoples in Eureka Seven AO) who played the role of Himeru


Manga de Wakaru Shinryou Naika is a manga written by Yuu Yuuki and illustrated by Sou. Yuuki used his experience as a psychiatrist to create the manga as a web series in 2009 before it was picked up by Shonen Gahosha and began serialization in their Young King magazine in 2009. To date a total of 11 volumes have been compiled and a total of 3 million copies of the series is in print. The manga also received a drama CD adaptation bundled with the manga’s 8th volume.

Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:

The psychologist Ryou and his cheerful nurse Asuna explain many aspects of mental illness to the reader. They cover topics such as the validity, prevalence, and origins of mental disorders, in addition to addressing specific disorders. The information is imparted in a cheerful and comic manner, with various jokes, puns, and pop culture references.

Anime de Wakaru Shinryou Naika will be airing in 2015. More information about the series will be revealed during a presentation on November 10th.
