posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the anime adaptation of Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga revealed on Tuesday that the anime's second season will have four Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video volumes, with a total of 12 episodes. The volumes are slated to ship in Japan on March 27, April 24, May 29, and June 26.
The new season features a returning staff. Takashi Naoya (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) is directing the anime at Hoods Entertainment (If Her Flag Breaks, Drifters, Märchen Mädchen). Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami, After the Rain) is in charge of series composition. Satomi Kurita (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) is designing the characters. BiSH performs the opening theme song "Futari nara." The band Fujifabric performs the ending theme song "Hagan" (Broad Smile).
The first season premiered in Japan last April and aired for 12 episodes. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and HIDIVE streamed the series as it aired. Sentai Filmworks will release the first season with an English dub. The company has also licensed the second season.
The josei manga follows Hikari "Tsuttsun" 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.
