A network leak claimed that the manga written and illustrated by Yuu Hashimoto, 2.5 Dimensional Seduction (2.5-jigen no Ririsa), will have an anime adaptation. The leak did not reveal production details or a scheduled premiere date, but it should be noted that the work has an important announcement scheduled for next December 9 in Japan.
Yuu Hashimoto began publishing the manga through the digital service Shōnen Jump Plus from the publisher Shueisha in June 2019, and the publisher published the fifteenth volume in October 2022, and will publish the sixteenth volume in January 2023 in Japan. This is the first work of the author Hashimoto, so no precedent can be established.
Synopsis of 2.5 Dimensional Seduction
“I’m not into real girls!” So says Okumura, the president of the school’s manga club. He is your typical otaku, obsessed with a sexy 2D (fictional) manga character known as Lilliel. Then the new school year begins and a (real!) 3D girl named Lilysa, whose passion is cosplay, joins the club. Lilysa convinces Okumura to become her photographer, and guess who is her favorite manga character. And not only that, Lilysa likes to model fetish stuff! The lines between 2D and 3D begin to blur as this hot-blooded romantic comedy unfolds. ©橋本悠(著) / SHUEISHA集英社
