Real Girl is an anime adaptation of a romantic comedy manga by Mao Nanami, which was serialized in Kodansha’s Dessert magazine from July 2011 to May 2016.

The manga series has released a total of 12 volumes.


The anime adaptation was directed by Takashi Naoya, who previously worked on popular anime shows like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou and A Certain Scientific Railgun S, while Arakawa Under the Bridge scriptwriter Deko Akao handled the series composition.

The Japanese voice cast was lead by Teppei Uenishi as “Hikaru Tsutsui”, and Yuu Serizawa (“Yumemi Yumemite”, Kakegurui) as “Iroha Igarashi”.
