The popular Japanese light novel series Yumemiru Danshi wa Genjitsushugisha (aka The Dreaming Boy is a Realist ) is getting an anime series and, if you love a good rom com, it may be one to add to your list.

That’s because Yumemiru Danshi wa Genjitsushugisha tells the story of Wataru Sajou, a new high school student, who studied to get into the school he is now attending because of his long-term crush on a girl who goes to the same school the school.

Aika Natsukawa is the girl’s name and, while Wataru has been crushing on her for years, when he finally meets her in high school, he gets hit in the head by a football and suddenly realizes she is way out of his league.


Meanwhile, Aika, being the tsundere she is, does everything she can to prove she isn’t interested in Wataru at all. The problem is, she actually has feelings for him.

Thus, starts a cute rom com about two people who may never get together, as they are both convinced they are just in a one-sided love.
