Sure, love is tough for otaku… but something tells me that at least a few fans will fall head over heels for this one.
Earlier today, the official Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii (Love is Hard for an Otaku) anime website updated with a new key visual. The image features characters Hanako Koyanagi and Tarō Kabakura, set against a white background.
A third trailer, which features Naoya Nifuji and Kō Sakuragi will be released on January 18.
Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii will air on Fuji TV’s NoitaminA block in April. A-1 Pictures is producing the project.
The series will star the following:
- Narumi Momose: Arisa Date
- Hirotaka Nifuji: Kent Itō
- Hanako Koyanagi: Miyuki Sawashiro
- Tarō Kabakura: Tomokazu Sugita
- Naoya Nifuji: Yuuki Kaji
- Kō Sakuragi: Aoi Yūki
Date and Itō previously appeared in promo teasers for the manga.
Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii originally launched on image hosting platform Pixiv in 2014. The series was picked up by Ichijinsha, and made its début in online publication Comic POOL in November 2015.
