posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

A stage event at AnimeJapan 2021 for the television anime of Hiroyuki's Girlfriend, Girlfriend (Kanojo mo Kanojo) manga revealed a teaser promotional video and new key visual for the anime on Sunday. The video reveals the main cast, more staff, and the show's July premiere.

The anime stars Junya Enoki as Naoya Mukai, Ayane Sakura as Saki Saki, Azumi Waki as Nagisa Minase, Ayana Taketatsu as Rika Hoshizaki, and Rie Takahashi as Shino Kiryū.

Kodansha Comics will release the manga digitally starting on April 6, and it describes the manga:

Naoya just got a girlfriend, the gorgeous Saki-chan, and though their intensities often pit them against each other like ice and fire, they're totally, uncontrollably in love with each other. He vows never to cheat...when out of the blue he receives another confession! Nagisa's cute, sweet, and she's made him lunch to boot! He knows he can't cheat, but he can't let a cutie like this get away...so he does the logical(?) thing: Asks Saki for permission to date them both! The confidence! The arrogance! The very gall! No matter the outcome, Naoya's future will be lively!

Satoshi Kuwabara (The Quintessential Quintuplets) is directing the anime at Tezuka Productions. Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) is in charge of series scripts. Akiko Toyoda (Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Keiichirō Ōchi, Kazuhiko Inukai, and Mayumi Morita are writing the scripts. Miki Sakurai and Tatsuhiko Saiki are composing the music

Additional staff includes:

Hiroyuki launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine last March.

Hiroyuki's Aho Girl, The Comic Artist and His Assistants, and Doujin Work manga have all inspired television anime. Media Blasters released the Doujin Work manga, and Kodansha Comics released the Aho Girl manga in English. AnimeWorks and Media Blasters released the Doujin Work anime on DVD, and Sentai Filmworks released The Comic Artist and His Assistants anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
