For Hikari Tsutsui, life within the two-dimensional realm is much simpler. Socially inept and awkward, he immerses himself in video games and anime, only to be relentlessly ridiculed and ostracized by his classmates. Sharing his misery is Yuuto Itou, his only friend, who wears cat ears and is equally obsessed with the world of games.

After being forced to clean the pool as punishment for arriving late, Tsutsui meets Iroha Igarashi, but he attempts to steer clear of her, as her notoriety precedes her. Brazenly blunt, loathed by female classmates, and infamous for messing around with boys, Tsutsui believes that getting involved with her would cause nothing but problems.

3D Kanojo: Real Girl is a story revolving around these two outcasts—a boy full of emotions he has never experienced before, struggling to lay them bare, and a girl who strives to break him out of his shell.

Do not let the scores and 1st season deceive you, this anime starts strong, it develops very mildly during the first season... but the real meat of the story comes in the 2nd season and makes this whole season 1 so much more memorable. I really dislike having good anime destroyed by "early scores" given buy clueless people who did not bother to watch the entire series seasons. And this seems to be the case with this one.

It might look a like your everyday shojo that’s very forgettable, but you couldn't be more wrong about it. Think of the first season as something happy to ...

Average, Average, Average. This anime was SOOOOOO mid. This anime had one
relationship problem after the other.

There was little no moment in this anime where one of the relationships had a chance to actually do something like in a normal relationship. I would only recommend this anime to anyone who either plays a lot of anime style games, or watch anime, only due to the fact the main character is an otaku.

story just explored the events which happened revolving the main character and his friends. I really hoped the couple in the story would have done something more like go on an actual fun ...

3D Kanojo: Real Girl is a painful experience. A lazily shat out rom-com that uses cliches and plot contrivances as a crutch to hobble its way through twelve agonizing episodes. Proudly it presents insultingly stereotypical characters that are anything but three-dimensional.

All you need to do is gaze upon this glorious shitfest and it becomes abundantly clear what the show’s main issue is: it’s fucking hideous. The art is a disaster; backgrounds are a mess of fuzzy colors, there’s very little animation, and in an attempt to stay on model the characters hardly change their expressions. All the show has going for its visuals are ...
