Netoge no Yome wa Onna no Ko ja nai to Omotta? is a light novel series by Shibai Kineko and illustrator Hisasi (Bikini Warriors). The series made its début in 2013 under Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko imprint. A total of seven volumes are available in the ongoing series. A manga adaptation by Kineko, which features art by Kazui Ishigami began its run in Dengeki G’s Comic magazine last year. The manga currently has one collected volume and is ongoing in the publication.

Anime News Network describes the series as follows:

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.
