Adaptation based on sci fi comedy by OYSTER hits Tokyo MX on April 08, 2019
A new trailer has been published for Choukadou Girl 1/6 (known in English as Over Drive Girl 1/6 or Amazing Stranger), an upcoming TV anime based on the sci fi romantic comedy manga by ÖYSTER about an otaku who begins a tiny life with a tiny wife after one of his bishoujo character figures begins talking and moving about on her own.
The original Choukadou Girl 1/6 manga began serialization in 2012 in Futabasha's Comic High! manga magazine before migrating to Futabasha's Monthly Action. The sequel series, known as Choukadou Girls (or Over Drive Girls in English) began serialization in 2017 in the digital version of Monthly Action magazine.
Choukadou Girl 1/6 follows Haruto Bouida, a geeky young man who is only interested in 2D characters rather than 3D relationships. One day, Haruto purchases a 1/6 scale bishoujo figure of Nona, a character from his favorite anime series, only to be shocked when the figure comes to life. Soon Haruto and Nona begin a strange new life together.
The Choukadou Girl 1/6 TV anime is directed by Keitaro Motonaga and features animation production by studio A-CAT. The series will broadcast in Japan on AT-X beginning on April 06, 2019, with additional broadcasts to follow on Tokyo MX beginning on April 08, 2019, and on BS-Fuji beginning on April 09, 2019.
