Buckle up, folks, because things are starting to get real.

Earlier today, broadcaster NTV opened an English info-page for their upcoming Real Girl (3D Kanojo) anime TV series. The page lists the series as having twelve episodes, and describes the premise as follows:

High school senior Hikari Tsutsui is the quintessential “2D otaku” obsessed with the two-dimensional worlds that unfold in his gadgets and books. A bizarre incident leads him into a romantic relationship with the gorgeous Iroha Igarashi and his days of being wrapped around the finger of his carefree girlfriend begin. Join Hikari as he tumbles through the rough waves that beat the otaku out of him. This is sure to be THE comedy program of 2018 that you won’t want to miss!

Real Girl will d├ębut in April, on NTV’s AnichU programming block.

Takashi Naoya (Luck & Logic, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) was tapped to direct the project at Hoods Entertainment, with Satomi Kurita (Hina Logic – from Luck & Logic) providing character designs. Deko Akao (Noragami, Flying Witch) is in charge of series composition for the project.

Mao Nanami’s original manga ran in Kodansha’s Dessert magazine from July 2011 through May 2016, and spans twelve compiled volumes.
