Tomo-chan is a Girl!, a popular four-panel manga by Fumita Yanagida, is getting an anime series that’s set to start airing in January 2023.
The manga centers around a tomboy named Tomo who struggles to confess her love to her childhood friend Junichiro.
The anime adaptation is directed by Hitoshi Nanba (Golden Kamuy) and animated at Lay-duce (Fanfare of Adolescence).
The manga ran from 2015 to 2019, and is licensed by Seven Seas in the US. Here’s how they describe volume 1:
Boyish high school girl Aizawa Tomo finally manages to tell her childhood friend Jun that she’s got a crush on him. Unfortunately, her confession goes right over his head—he didn’t even realize she was a girl until middle school, and even now, Jun still thinks of her as a bro! How can Tomo-chan possibly convince him otherwise and win Jun’s heart?
