Falling in love in the 3D world is tough for a fan of 2D entertainment in the trailer for the TV anime adaptation of Real Girl (known as 3D Kanojo: Real Girl in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the romantic comedy manga by Nao Manami about an introverted otaku who ends up in a romantic relationship with a popular high school student.
The original 3D Kanojo: Real Girl manga was serialized from 2011 - 2016 in Kodansha's Dessert Shōjo manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Kodansha Comics under the title Real Girl. The Real Girl TV anime is directed by Takashi Naoya and features animation by Hoods Entertainment.
The Real Girl TV anime will broadcast on Nippon TV as part of the "AnichU" programming block beginning on April 03, 2018, and it will also stream in North America and other select regions on HIDIVE. HIDIVE describes the story of Real Girl as follows:
Despite his disdain for real-world girls, Hikari Tsutsui can’t help but begin to fall for the beautiful social butterfly Iroha Igarashi, who, much to his surprise, not only talks to him in front of other people but also agrees to go out with him. As their relationship develops, the couple starts to learn more about each other and themselves in the process discovering what it means to truly be real.
