Imagine confessing your love to your childhood friend. But soon after that, you are approached by three other beautiful girls who confess that they have feelings for you! Quite a predicament, isn’t it?
The popular harem romantic comedy manga “Girlfriend, Girlfriend” (Kanojo mo Kanojo) deals with the same situation. When Naoya Mukai and his childhood friend Saki Saki begin a relationship, their three classmates – Nagisa, Rika, and Shino also confess their feelings for Naoya!
How the young man deals with the whole situation is the central plot line of this story.
It has been officially announced that “Girlfriend, Girlfriend” will premiere on July 2, 2021, in Japan.
Just last month the anime adaptation based on the manga was announced. Tezuka Productions, the brain behind popular anime like Astro Boy and Black Jack, is all set to lead the production.
The official website of the anime confirmed the following broadcasting details:
|Channel||Broadcast Time (in JST, UTC + 09:00)|
|TBS||Every Friday at 2:25 PM|
|MBS||Every Friday at 2:25 PM|
|BS-TBS (Animeism)||Every Friday at 3:00 PM|
Recently, the manga also achieved a significant milestone. Girlfriend, Girlfriend has reached 700,000 copies in circulation.
This shows how popular author and illustrator Hiroyuki’s work is and justifies Tezuka Produictions’ immediate interest in producing an anime adaptation of the manga.
But only time will tell if the anime has done justice to the manga. How will Naoya’s cheesy love story end? Will he be able to focus on only one girl at the end? We will have to follow the series to find out!
