Netoge no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja nai to Omotta? Light Novels Get TV Anime Adaptation

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Series centers on boy who swears never to trust "girls" online again

Kadokawa revealed in a listing for its stage events for its upcoming "Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2015" festival on October 4 that author Shibai Kineko and illustrator Hisasi's Netoge no Yome wa Onna no ko ja Nai to Omotta? (I Thought My Online Game Wife Wasn't A Girl?) light novel series is inspiring a television anime adaptation. The novels list the English title And you thought there is never a girl online?.

The story centers on Hideki Nishimura, a young man who confessed to a person he thought was a girl online, only for that person to turn out to be a boy. He keeps this "black history" secret and swears to never to trust a "girl" online again. However, one day a girl online confesses to him, and it turns out she's actually a beautiful girl named Ako Tamaki. Ako cannot tell the difference between the online world and reality, and she is a loner who has trouble communicating. Hideki and his friends from his guild decide to work together to "correct" her.

Kadokawa will reveal more information about the anime's cast and staff at a later date.

Kineko and Hisasi launched the series in 2013, and Kadokawa will publish the eighth light novel volume on Saturday. Kazui Ishigami is drawing a manga adaptation in Dengeki G's Comic magazine, and Kadokawa released the first compiled volume on March 7.

Hisasi also created the Fighter character design for the Bikini Warriors television anime series, and he drew the Cute Devil Girlfriend adult manga that Digital Manga Inc.'s Project-H imprint published in North America.
