Kenichi Kasai (Major, Bakuman., Nodame Cantabile) is directing the series at J.C. Staff. Michiko Yokote (xxxHOLiC, Squid Girl) is working on the series composition while Yoko Ito (key animator for Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Turn A Gundam) is in charge of character design.
The story revolves around Izumi Sena, a boy born into a family of ultra-famous entertainers. However, he is the only member of the family who is not in the entertainment industry, and he is a super otaku college student, too. He has been striving hard to become a manga creator, but he ends up starring in a television commercial. He eventually cross paths again with the very famous actor Ryūma, who becomes aware of his attraction towards Izumi.
The anime is slated to premiere this year.
The March issue of Kadokawa's Asuka Ciel magazine will publish commentary by the animation staff on Thursday. Kadokawa published the third volume in the series in May.
Several of Eiki's works, such as The Art of Loving, Color (a collaboration with Zaou), Dear Myself, Millennium Prime Minister, and Train☆Train, have been published in English. Zaou's Electric Hands and Mysterious Love have also been published in English.
