If you thought the saga of Gum Boys! — Lotte’s ad campaign featuring their leading gum varieties as cute boys — couldn’t get any weirder, say hello to Gum Boys! -Idol Beginning-
The manga stars a schoolgirl who awakens one morning to find that she’s transformed into a gigantic tooth — and that a group of cute anthropomorphized gum boys have transferred to her school. Soon, she finds herself working as the producer for the boys’ new idol unit.
Several pages are already available to read on Pixiv Comic, and there’s a website with more information on the characters and story. A print version went on sale yesterday, coinciding with a nationwide campaign where shoppers can get free Lotte gum.
