posted on by Karen Ressler
Warner Bros. Japan announced on Wednesday that it will release a live-action film adaptation of Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga in 2018. Ayami Nakajō and Hayato Sano are starring as Iroha and Hikari, respectively.
Tsutomu Hanabusa is directing the film with some of the same staff as his previous directorial work Heroine Shikkaku.
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 manga ran in Kodansha's Dessert magazine from July 2011 to May 2016, and Kodansha published the series in 12 compiled volumes. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally.
