Takahashi Rie voices the tomboy-ish voice of Aizawa Tomo. Ishikawa Kaito voices the dense protagonist Kubota Junichirou. Meanwhile, Hidaka Rina voices Tomo’s best friend, Gundou Misuzu.
Not only equipped with great VAs, but the staff of this series also has an excellent track record. Nanba Hitoshi (Golden Kamuy) is the director of the show. The script is written by Shimizu Megumi (Banished from the Hero’s Party). Moreover, the music will be in the hands of Yokoyama Masaru (Your Lie in April).
Lay-duce studio takes the reins in producing the anime. Albeit still a young studio, created in 2013, this studio already made several “acceptable” anime such as Magi: Adventure of Sinbad and Fate/Grand Order: First Order. This series may become a stepping stone for their future project.

Tomo-chan Is a Girl! Story
The story follows Tomo Aizawa, an extremely tomboy-ish girl who loves her childhood friend, Kubota Junichirou. The problem is her friend always treats her as a boy.
His skull is so dense that when Tomo confesses her feeling, he just says he also loves her nonchalantly.
Sure enough, Tomo gets pissed off. Now she has to do anything to make him realize her womanly charms.
With the support of her best friend, Gundou, can Tomo make Junichirou realize her love?
