The anime's "Onyankopon" watched over people long ago, but one day an old woman accidentally hit Onyankopon in the head with a mallet while mashing yams. Since then, Onyankopon has been nervous about greeting people directly, and so sends subordinates to speak to them and solve their problems. In the show, Onyankopon will use Afrobeat and dance to help Japanese high school girls with problems such as dieting, love, and cramming for exams.

Sōta Sugahara (gdgd Fairies, Hi-sCool! Seha Girls) is directing the series and Takeshi Onaka (Lights of the Clione) is writing the scripts. Hikaru Suemasa is designing the characters. Music duo Makomina is serving as the chief producer for the anime and twin models Rikariko are listed as the producer.
