A synopsis for Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta is provided by Anime News Network:
Hideki Nishimura confessed to a person he thought was a girl online, only for that person to turn out to be a boy. He keeps this “black history” secret and swears to never to trust a “girl” online again. However, one day a girl online confesses to him, and it turns out she’s actually a beautiful girl named Ako Tamaki. Ako cannot tell the difference between the online world and reality, and she is a loner who has trouble communicating. Hideki and his friends from his guild decide to work together to “correct” her.
The staff and cast for the Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta anime adaptation have not been revealed yet and will be provided at a later date.
