Crunchyroll will simulcast the romantic-comedy series
Upcoming romantic-comedy anime Tomo-chan Is a Girl! is officially knocking on (or rather kicking through) the door of 2023, today announcing a January 4 at 24:30 JST (effectively January 5 at 0:30) premiere with the release of a new key visual and the main trailer.
On top of punchy gags and battles for understanding, the new trailer also reveals the anime's ending theme song, "urukuru＊love" performed by cast members Rie Takahashi (Tomo), Rina Hidaka (Misuzu) and Sally Amaki (Carol). The previously announced opening theme song, "Kurae! Telepathy" by Maharajan, is also previewed.
Based on the manga by Fumita Yanagida, Tomo-chan Is a Girl! is being directed by Hitoshi Nanba (Golden Kamuy) and assistant-directed by Noriki Hashimoto (Heroines Run the Show) at studio Lay-duce, with series composition by Megumi Shimizu (My Next Life as a Villainess), character designs by Shiori Hiraiwa and music by Masaru Yokoyama (Fruits Basket).
