Online retailer Rakuten is currently listing the cover of the February issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine, which announces that the television anime adaptation of Oyster's Over Drive Girl 1/6 (Chōkadō Girl 1/6 - Amazing Stranger) manga will premiere in April 2019. The magazine issue will formally ship on December 25.
The story begins when Nona, a bishōjo character figure that the young male otaku office worker Haruto bought, suddenly comes to life, and begins moving and talking on her own. The slapstick romantic comedy centers on the daily lives of Haruto and Nona.
Oyster launched the original Over Drive Girl 1/6 manga in Futabasha's Comic High magazine in 2012, and also serialized the manga in Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine in 2015. Futabasha published four compiled book volumes for Over Drive Girl 1/6.
The Over Drive Girls sequel began on the Nico Nico Seiga website in 2017. This sequel also began serializing in the November issue of Monthly Action on September 25. The manga's first compiled volume shipped on September 12.
