Renowned screenwriter Yuko Kakihara, master animator Masafumi Yukota, and emerging actors KenshŁ Ono as Hiiragi and Miyu Tomita as Tsumugi, the protagonists, make up the outstanding cast of My Oni Girl.

The first-year high school student Hiiragi Yatsuse, who lives in the wealthy and gorgeous Yamagata Prefecture, is the subject of the novel My Oni Girl. However, there is Tsumugi, a female Oni demon with a single horn. Hampered by his loneliness and desire to make a positive impression on his classmates, Hiiragi finds it difficult to refuse requests for help or other things from other people.

Tsumugi, on the other hand, is a vivacious, strong, and intimidating Oni woman who has come to Earth in search of her mother. She acts as she pleases. A bond forms between the two when their paths happen to cross one summer day while Hiiragi is attempting, in vain, to fulfil another desire. In addition to bringing snow in the summer, mystery since Tsumugi’s entrance has also portended change and rebirth in the days ahead, along with some daring experiences.

Although Tsumugi and Hiiragi are complete opposites, they might be able to reflect each other’s positive traits and give Hiiragi the confidence and validation he needs without having to be such people-pleaser. Meanwhile, Tsumugi might find some balance in her life as well as companionship—not to mention assistance—while looking for her mother and navigating the mortal world.
