Pony Canyon announced on Friday that Okemaru's Yumemiru Danshi wa Genjitsushugisha (The Dreaming Man is a Realist) light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation in 2023.

Kazuomi Koga (Rent-A-Girlfriend, Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, Prison School, Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin) is in charge of the series scripts.

Pony Canyon is producing the music.

The anime stars:

In the "two-way unrequited love" story, high school student Wataru Sajõ is in love with his gorgeous classmate Aika Natsukawa. Aika finds him to be a nuisance, but he dreams of her mutual love every day and continues to approach her. One day though, he suddenly wakes up from this "dream." In order to get back his sense of reality, he recognizes his position and stays away from Aika. But now for some reason Aika is completely shaken.

Okemaru launched the series on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in December 2018, where it is ongoing. Hobby Japan is releasing the novels in print with illustrations by Sabamizore, and released the seventh volume on August 1. Popuri Yoshikita is drawing a manga adaptation, and Kadokawa will release the third volume on November 25.
