Real Girl Josei Romantic Comedy Manga Gets TV Anime in 2018

posted on by Egan Loo
Mao Nanami's manga released in English with 2018 live-action film planned

A television anime adaptation of Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga is slated for next year. The broadcast station (or stations), cast, and other details will be announced in the future.

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 romantic comedy 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 in English.

Warner Bros. Japan announced in July that it will also release a live-action film adaptation of the manga in 2018. Ayami Nakajō and Hayato Sano are starring as Iroha and Hikari, respectively.
