Real Girl Anime Gets 2nd Season

posted on by Karen Ressler
New season slated for January 2019

The official Twitter account for anime based on Mao Nanami's Real Girl (3D Kanojo) manga announced on Wednesday that the show will get a second season. The new season will premiere in January 2019 on NTV's AnichU block, the same block as the first season.

The anime premiered in Japan on April 3 and the 12th and final episode aired on Wednesday. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and HIDIVE streamed the series as it aired.

Takashi Naoya (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) directed the anime at Hoods Entertainment (If Her Flag Breaks, Drifters, Märchen Mädchen). Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami, After the Rain) were in charge of series composition. Satomi Kurita (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) designed 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.

A live-action film adaptation will premiere in Japan on September 14.
