    This could have gone either way between Sentai and Crunchyroll and given their weakened lineup after Amazon's support was withdrawn, I thought this was more likely to end up on Crunchyroll. Anyway, I'm not expecting this to be one of their dubcast titles this season, but at this point it's way too soon to tell when this is only their fourth show of the season.

        Expected this, but I really couldn't care less or be less excited about this show.

            I wasn't expecting this show to get a dub, but it did have a solid fan following seeing that it did get a second season. So we can pencil that in as a dubcast title for the winter season.

              HIDIVE Discovers the Language of Love with "Real Girl" English Dub

              HOUSTON, TX, October 22, 2018 - HIDIVE announced today that it acquired exclusive streaming rights to the English dub of "Real Girl" for the USA, the UK, Ireland, Canada and other select territories. HIDIVE subscribers can watch the premiere on October 30, 2018 at 17:00 UTC with subsequent episodes released every Tuesday.

              The reclusive Hikari Tsutsui wants nothing to do with real-world girls. According to him, fictional girls like Ezomichi are much better. But one day, he finds himself paired up with Iroha Igarashi, who is nothing but trouble according to the school's rumor mill. The couple develops a close bond, which challenges their preconceived notions of others. Soon, this leads to something more between the two.

                        So Sentai is experimenting here releasing episodes three per month rather than weekly. That ought to alleviate the pressure of getting episodes recorded on-time, all at the cost of a later delivery. Seeing that Sentai's dubbing schedule is so packed compared to Funimation that it makes sense. And it shouldn't be too long before the rest of their Dubcast lineup is announced now that the season is nearing the halfway point. Domestic Girlfriend, Mysteria Friends, and The Magnificent Kotobuki would be my picks for Dubcasts this season.
