Anime Rom-Com ‘Senryu Girl’ Is Headed To HiDive

‘Senryuu Shojo’ is a 2016 slice-of-life romantic comedy manga created by Masakuni Igarashi and released by the Tokyo-based publisher Kodansha. In 2019, the Japanese animation studio Connect picked it up as anime and released it under the tile ‘Senryu Girl’ in international markets including the United States. Sentai Filmworks dubbed all thirteen episodes during its initial run.

Fans of the show got some good news when the streaming service HiDive announced that they would be adding the subbed and dubbed version of the series to its streaming library on June 11 where audiences can rewatch the anime.

Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,

“The story focuses on the relationship between Nanako Yukishiro, a girl who only communicates through senryū written on tanzaku, and Eiji Busujima, an ex-delinquent who attempts to write his own senryū.[4] The story follows their different takes on everyday life through their senryu. Most chapters take the form of a collection of yonkomas with a few more traditional pages thrown in; these tell the chapter’s story when read in order.”

The manga was serialized in ‘Weekly Shōnen Magazine’ during its run between 2016 and 2020. strives to be an apolitical, balanced and based pop culture news outlet.
