posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga announced its second round of cast members on Tuesday. The new cast members are (from left to right in image below):

  • Hiroya Shimizu (live-action Chihayafuru) as Mitsuya Takanashi, a handsome boy who attends Iroha and Tsutsui's school
  • Yuri Tsunematsu (live-action Sakurada Reset) as Arisa Ishino, an energetic girl who is in love with Mitsuya
  • Moka Kamishiraishi (live-action Haruchika) as Sumie Ayado, an otaku girl who is Tsutsui's underclassman
  • Yūtarō as Yūto Itō, Tsutsui's one friend, a cat ear-loving otaku

As previously announced, Ayami Nakajō and Hayato Sano (pictured below) are starring as Iroha and Hikari Tsutsui, respectively.

This film will open this fall. 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.

The manga is also inspiring an anime adaptation from director Takashi Naoya this year.
