Mao Nanami’s Real Girl manga, known in Japan as 3D Kanojo, is officially getting an anime adaptation, and we’ll only have to wait a few months for its premiere. An official website is now live for the series, which is set to debut in Japan this April.
Touken Ranbu Hanamaru‘s Takashi Naoya is lined up to direct the anime, with Satomi Kurita (Luck & Logic, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) on character designs and Deko Akao (Noragami Aragoto) on series composition for the Hoods Entertainment production.
Here’s the first key visual:
Kodansha publishes the manga in English, and sums it up like so:
Hikari Tsutsui (a.k.a “Tsuttsun”) is a high school student who is content with his virtual life of anime and video games. One day, he gets stuck cleaning the pool with Iroha, a real live girl who is stylish, sassy and known to be easy with boys … and she aggressively approaches him! Tsuttsun, who has few friends and lives in his own world, finds himself smitten by the confident and wild Iroha … and his whole world is turned upside down!! It’s the awkward and pure love story of a boy who experiences relationship for the first time.
