Haruka was only hoping for a simple “yes” when he asked out his classmate Akiho, but he ended up getting much more than he bargained for. The romance that ensues is anything but ordinary in the My Girlfriend is Shobitch anime, coming to Blu-ray in a Complete Collection on February 12!
The way Akiho approaches her newfound relationship with Haruka raises some immediate red flags. She tends to treat everything with an emotionally detached attitude more suited to scientific research than young love. To make matters even more awkward, her questions skew toward the sexual, going so far as to request a comprehensive list of Haruka’s sexual fetishes for the purpose of future planning.
With all of this in mind, you can only imagine what happens when it’s time for Haruka to meet Akiho’s parents. It may just turn out that this odd apple didn’t fall very far from the TMI tree.
Based on the manga written and illustrated by Namiru Matsumoto, My Girlfriend is Shobitch features direction by Nobuyoshi Nagayama (Happy Sugar Life), series composition by Hideki Shirane (Date A Live, Kill Me Baby), and animation production by diomedea and Studio Blanc. You may not want to find yourself on any of Haruka and Akiho’s dates, but watching them unfold never gets old. Pre-order your copy of My Girlfriend of Shobitch today for a front row seat.
