Based on Mao Nanami’s manga, it follows Hikari Tsutsui, aka “Tsuttsun” (Hayato Sano, from the group M!LK), a high school student content with anime and video games. One day, he gets stuck cleaning the pool with Iroha Igarashi (Ayami Nakajo), a girl who is stylish, sassy and known to be easy with boys. After helping Iroha fend off an aggressive student, Tsuttsun’s whole world is turned upside down when she asks him if he will go out with her.
The new teaser features Tsuttsun coming to Iroha’s rescue after she is accused of stealing, and a few appearances of Magical Girl Ezomichi, the blue-haired protagonist from an anime that Tsuttsun is a fan of.
Real Girl (3D Kanojo) is directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa (of The Handsome Suit and Sadako 3D) and opens in Japan on 14 September 2018.
