The official Ro-Kyu-Bu! YouTube account posted the following live-action teaser video for the upcoming television anime adaptation of Sagu Aoyama's light novel series. The story centers around a high school freshman boy named Subaru Hasegawa who joined the basketball team, but the team stopped playing due to the captain being suspected of being a lolicon.

The girls are played by five voice actresses, who form a unit named Ro-Kyu-Bu! after the anime's title:



Yuuki Kaji (Hasegawa) and Shizuka Itou will also appear in the series.
