Netoge no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja nai to Omotta? TV Anime's Cast Revealed

Toshiyuki Toyonaga, Rina Hidaka, Inori Minase, M.A.O star in adaptation of light novel series

Kadokawa revealed the main cast on Friday for the television anime adaptation of author Shibai Kineko and illustrator Hisasi's Netoge no Yome wa Onna no ko ja Nai to Omotta? (And you thought there is never a girl online?) light novel series.

The main cast includes:

Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Durarara!!'s Mikado Ryūgamine) as Hideki Nishimura / Lucian
Rina Hidaka (Sword Art Online's Silica) as Ako Tamaki / Ako
Inori Minase (School-Live!'s Yuki Takeya) as Akane Segawa / Schwein
M.A.O (Overlord's Enri Emmot) as Kyō Goshōin / Apricot

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.

Kineko and Hisasi launched the series in 2013, and Kadokawa published the eighth light novel volume earlier this month. 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.
