The anime adaptation of manga Girlfriend, Girlfriend (Kanojo mo Kanojo) is set to hit screens July 2.
That’s the word from the anime’s official website.
The series, about a guy who’s dating two girls, is directed and penned by the team behind The Quintessential Quintuplets: Satoshi Kuwabara and Keiichiro Ochi. It features character designs by Akiko Toyoda, and it’s animated at Tezuka Productions.
It’ll star Junya Enoki as Naoya Mukai, Ayane Sakura as Saki Saki, Azumi Waki as Nagisa Minase, Ayana Taketatsu as Rika Hoshizaki and Rie Takahashi as Shino Kiryu.
Here’s how Kodansha Comics describes the original manga by Hiroyuki:
Naoya just got a girlfriend, the gorgeous Saki-chan, and though their intensities often pit them against each other like ice and fire, they’re totally, uncontrollably in love with each other. He vows never to cheat…when out of the blue he receives another confession! Nagisa’s cute, sweet, and she’s made him lunch to boot! He knows he can’t cheat, but he can’t let a cutie like this get away…so he does the logical(?) thing: Asks Saki for permission to date them both! The confidence! The arrogance! The very gall! No matter the outcome, Naoya’s future will be lively!
The adaptation of Girlfriend, Girlfriend was first announced back in November.
