Real Girl Anime's TV Ad Reveals Quruli Theme Song
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the television anime based on Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga began streaming a commercial for the series on Saturday. (Note: The video on the official website is region-locked to Japan.)
The official Twitter account for the anime also revealed on Saturday that the three-member group Quruli (RIN-NE first season) will perform the show's theme song "Daiji na Koto" (Important Thing). The group wrote the song specifically for the anime. The video above previews the song.
The anime will premiere on NTV's AnichU programming block in April, and is listed with 12 episodes.
Takashi Naoya (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) is directing the anime at Hoods Entertainment (If Her Flag Breaks, Drifters, Märchen Mädchen). Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami, After the Rain) is in charge of series composition. Satomi Kurita (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) is designing the characters.
The josei manga follows Hikari "Tsuttsun" 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. The manga has 1.2 million copies in print. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English.
Warner Bros. Japan announced last July that it will also release a live-action film adaptation of the manga. Ayami Nakajō and Hayato Sano are starring as Iroha and Hikari, respectively. The film will open this fall, with Tsutomu Hanabusa directing.
Update: Corrected spelling of theme song group Quruli. Thanks, Yuriria1997.
