Tomo-Chan is a Girl! Main Trailer Previews Theme Songs, Reveals January 4 Premiere


The Tomo-Chan is a Girl! anime adaptation has received a main trailer, a new visual, and a January 4 (effectively January 5 at 12.30 AM JST) Japanese premiere date. In addition to showing more of the characters and the main pair’s relationship dynamic, the trailer previews the show’s theme songs.

One of the theme songs is the newly announced ending song “yurukuru*love,” which is performed by Rie TakahashiRina Hidaka and Sally Amaki as their respective characters Tomo Aizawa, Misuzu Gundo, and Carol Olston.

Tomo-Chan is a Girl! is an adaptation of the Seikaisha-published manga by Fumita Yanagida, which began in 2015 and was serialized on the Twi4 Twitter account. The manga ended in 2019 with eight tankoubon volumes, which are published under the Seikaisha Comics label. Crunchyroll will stream the show.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the manga as:

Tomo and Jun have been best buds since they were little kids, but now that they’re in high school, Tomo wants to be more than friends…too bad Jun just sees her as ‘one of the guys.’ Tomo may be a tomboy, but she’s determined to prove to Jun that she’s a woman, too!

Meanwhile, the cast includes Kaito Ishikawa as Junichiro Kubota, Kohei Amasaki as Kosuke Misaki, and Matsuoka Yoshitsuga as Tatsumi Tanabe.
