Sentai Filmworks announced another title for the upcoming spring 2018 anime season. The latest addition is the romantic comedy Real Girl, which will be available in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Nordics, Spain, Portugal and Central & South America.
Hoods Entertainment (Mysterious Girlfriend X) handles animation production, with Takashi Naoya (Luck & Logic) directing and Deko Akao (Noragami) on series composition. Real Girl will be out soon on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
The character-driven story follows the reclusive Hikari Tsutsui as he accidentally falls in love with the popular Iroha Igarashi, despite his aversion to real-world girls. The couple begins to develop a close bond neither expected which challenges their preconceived notions of who people truly are.
