The slice-of-life comedy is set in a countryside school with only five students total, including: first grader Renge Miyauchi (Kotori Koiwai), first-year middle school student Natsumi Koshigaya (Ayane Sakura), and second-year middle school student Komari Koshigaya (Kana Asumi). The nearest bookstore is 20 minutes away by bicycle, a certain "Ju_p" magazine comes out on Wednesdays instead of Mondays, and the video rental store is 10 stations away.
Fifth-grade schoolgirl Hotaru Ichijō (Rie Murakawa) transfers from Tokyo to this school and readjusts to the slow life in the country.
Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Girls und Panzer) is overseeing the series scripts, and Mai Otsuka (Oreshura, Shakugan no Shana III (Final), Astarotte no Omocha!) is the character designer and chief animation director.
The scripts are being written by Yoshida, Fumihiko Shimo (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Infinite Stratos, Fate/Stay Night), and Yuka Yamada (Bungaku Shōjo, Tamayura - More Aggressive, Mushi-Shi). Kusanagi (Waiting in the Summer, Magi) is handling the background art, and SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is overseeing the production. Band nano.ripe will perform the series' opening theme.
The series will premiere this October.
