posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga revealed a new poster visual for the film on Thursday. The visual's tagline reads, "A beautiful girl and an otaku, both from different worlds, but they fall in love?!"
The film will open in Japan on September 14. Tsutomu Hanabusa is directing the film with some of the same staff as his previous directorial work Heroine Shikkaku. Kana Nishino is performing the theme song "Bedtime Story."
Real Girl follows Hikari Tsutsui, a high school boy who is satisfied with the virtual girls he encounters in anime and games. He does not have many friends and he lives in his own world. One day, when he is stuck on pool cleaning duty, he is approached by Iroha, a "real girl" who is showy and popular with boys.
The romantic comedy manga ran in Kodansha's Dessert magazine from July 2011 to May 2016, and Kodansha published the series in 12 compiled volumes. The manga has 1.2 million copies in print. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English.
