The official website for the television anime of Sakuya Amano's Konohana Kitan manga announced on Wednesday that the series will premiere on AT-X on October 4 at 8:00 p.m., and later the same evening on Tokyo MX. It will also air the following evening on BS11 and at an as-yet-unspecified time on Kansai TV.
The staff will hold a preview screening with a cast talkshow on September 24.
Hideki Okamoto (Nagasarete Airantou, Nana to Kaoru, D.C. II: Da Capo II) is directing the series at Lerche. Takao Yoshioka (WATAMOTE, Ikki Tousen, Elfen Lied) is handling the series composition, and Keiko Kurosawa (Scum's Wish, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is the character designer. Music group eufonius is performing the opening theme song.
The cast includes:
- Ayaka Suwa as Natsume
- Risa Kubota as Ren
- Manami Numakura as Kiri
- Ai Kakuma as Sakura

The manga originates from Amano's earlier Konohana-tei Kitan manga, which launched in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime S magazine in 2009. Amano put the manga on hiatus in 2010. Four years later, Amano relaunched the manga with the new Konohana Kitan title in Gentosha's Comic Birz. Gentosha published the manga's fifth volume on March 24.
