Takeshi Furuta (Giant Killing, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE episode director) will direct the series, Aki Itami (Flowers of Evil, Mushi-Shi) will write the scripts, and Hitomi Tsuruta (The Knight in the Area) will design the characters. Animation studio ZEXCS (D.C. ~Da Capo~, Flowers of Evil, Say, "I Love You".) will produce the series.
The manga tells the story of professional manga artist Yūki Aito and his professional/personal relationship with his assistant Sahoto Ashisu and other staffers.
The four-panel slice-of-life comic began in 2008 and ended last year. Hiroyuki began the series again under the title Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to 2 in August. The 10th compiled volume shipped last year.
Another manga by Hiroyuki, Doujin Work, also inspired a television anime.
