“Tomo is envious of the girls in his class who play with each other. Tomo sees the girls in her class playing with each other and envies them. She makes a passionate approach to Misuzu for kinship, but she adamantly refuses. Tomo has no choice but to hug Ogawa and Mifune at random.

Creator comments on anime adaptation
Shinta Yanagida, the creator of the Tomo-chan Is A Girl manga series, recently provided his thoughts on the popular anime adaptation
“It has been seven years since I started the serialization of Tomo-chan. It is true that I was the one who first created the characters, but as the series continued, I felt that a kind of common understanding of “this character’s personality” was developing among myself, other editors, and readers, and Tomo and his friends were no longer the product of my own imagination at an early stage.” – Shinta Yanagida, via official website.
Shinta added, “I realized that this was what it meant for the characters to be alive, and when it came to the anime adaptation, the interpretations of the many people involved in the production, including the director, producer, scriptwriter, and voice actors, made the characters seem even more “alive” to me.”
“Since it has been a while since its completion, I feel that I am now just a viewer looking forward to the anime broadcast rather than the author of the original work, so I would like to enjoy the anime “Tomo is a Girl! I would like to genuinely enjoy the anime “Tomo is a Girl!” – Shinta Yanagida, via official website.
