Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation, Danganronpa The Animation, Tsuki ga Kirei) is directing the anime at Lerche, with Yū Kinome (School-Live!, Scum's Wish episode director) as assistant director. Yuuko Kakihara (Persona 4 The Animation, Chihayafuru 2, Tsuki ga Kirei) is in charge of series scripts. Keiko Kurosawa (Re:␣Hamatora, Scum's Wish, Konohana Kitan) is designing the characters. KUSANAGI (Non Non Biyori, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW, Princess Principal) is drawing the backgrounds. Morita Editing Room is handling the editing.

The "surreal gag" comedy manga revolves around three classmates who play traditional hand games, board games, and card games. Kasumi is smart, serious, and is good at games, but hates them because she always lost to her older sister and was forced to do chores while growing up. She is also extremely bad at English. Olivia is a beautiful girl of American descent, but was raised in Japan, and she only pretends to be bad at Japanese. Hanako is a girl who wears her hair in pigtails and has a bright personality, but still can't manage to become the kind of normal person she wants to be.
