HIDIVE announced on Monday that it will begin streaming the English dub for Real Girl in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and other territories on October 30 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. New episodes will stream on Tuesdays.
The series premiered in Japan on April 3 and aired for 12 episodes. 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) was 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 anime will get a second season in January. Sentai Filmworks has also licensed the sequel.
