The anime studio AIC Frontier (Maji de Otaku na English! Ribbon-chan: Eigo de Tatakau Mahō Shōjo) will produce the anime adaptation of Chizuna Nakajima's bishōjo gag comedy manga Angel's Drop (Tenshi no Drop).
Koji Ito (Megane na Kanojo, Geisters - Fractions of the Earth) will direct the anime, and Kazuhiro Nasu (key animator for R-15, Strike Witches 2, Amagami SS) will handle the character designs. AIC Frontier plans to release a promotional video for the anime on January 12, the same day the third volume of Nakajima's manga ships in Japan.
The story centers on Botan and Shinobu, two childhood friends who enroll in St. Azumaria Girls' Academy. Their encounter with an "angel" named Un-chan leads to strange things happening in their lives. The manga openly describes itself as covering yuri, hentai, omorashi, and other elements of fetishism not usually seen in shōnen or shōjo manga.
