'And you thought there is never a girl online?' Manga Ends in September

posted on by Karen Ressler
Manga adapts light novels that also inspired anime

This year's October issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine announced on Thursday that Kazui Ishigami's manga adaptation of Shibai Kineko's Netoge no Yome wa Onna no ko ja Nai to Omotta? (And you thought there is never a girl online?) light novel series will end in the next issue on September 29.

Ishigami launched the manga in Dengeki G's Comic in August 2014. The seventh compiled volume shipped on March 10.

Kineko launched the series with illustrations by Hisasi in 2013, and the 17th volume shipped in Japan on June 9. The novels inspired an anime adaptation in 2016. FUNimation Entertainment streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan, and also offered an English dub as it was still airing.

The story centers on Hideki Nishimura, a young man who confessed to a person he thought was a girl online, only for that person to turn out to be a boy. He keeps this "black history" secret and swears to never to trust a "girl" online again. However, one day a girl online confesses to him, and it turns out she's actually a beautiful girl named Ako Tamaki. Ako cannot tell the difference between the online world and reality, and she is a loner who has trouble communicating. Hideki and his friends from his guild decide to work together to "correct" her.
