Amazon Japan is currently listing that the anime of Bkub Ōkawa's Pop Team Epic manga will have three home video releases and 12 total episodes. Each volume is also listed with bonus video footage, audio commentary, and a booklet.
Space Neko Company's Jun Aoki (Oshiruko - The Summertime Mischief, Stephan no Ongaeshi, "#1 Adachin mo Keitai ga Hoshii da chin!") and Aoi Umeki (Kamikaze Douga staffer on City Hunter's "Ryō no Propose" short) are serving as series directors. Kotaro Sudo is planning and producing, and Aoki is in charge of series scripts. Umeki is in charge of concept design works. Tōru Kanegae is directing the sound at Glovision, and Yasumasa Koyama is handling sound effects. Busted Rose's Gin is composing the music. Sumire Uesaka will perform the opening theme song "Pop Team Epic."
Kamikaze Douga is animating the series, and King Records is credited for production. The self-described "crappy anime" will launch in January after a delay from the planned October launch.
