Adaptation based on web comic by Fujita joins the "noitaminA" anime block in April of 2018
Voice actress Aoi Yūki has joined the cast of Wotaku ni Koi ha Muzukashii ("It's Difficult to Love an Otaku"), an upcoming TV anime based on the web comic by Fujita about nerdy couples who find romance despite their obsessions with their hobbies. Yūki plays Kō Sakuragi, a shy and introverted college student who loves video games and whose slim build and above average height often cause her to be mistaken for a man.
The Wotaku ni Koi ha Muzukashii web manga is serialized on Pixiv and Ichijinsha's comic POOL web site, and the series is also published in print form by Ichijinsha. The story follows the clumsy romance that blossoms when Narumi Momose, an office lady who is secretly a fujoshi, is reunited with former childhood friend Hirotaka Nifuji, an elite salaryman who is obsessed with video games.
The Wotaku ni Koi ha Muzukashii TV anime is produced by Aniplex, Fuji Television, and Ichijinsha and features animation production by A-1 Pictures. It will begin broadcast as part of Fuji TV's "noitaminA" anime block in April of 2018, and it will also be digitally distributed by Amazon Prime.
