The official website for the Haitai Nanafa television anime series announced on Tuesday that the series will premiere on October 6 on the Ryukyu Asahi Broadcasting station. The series will air on Saturdays at 5:55 p.m.

The story of Haitai Nanafa revolves around an energetic middle school girl named Nanafa Kyan. Nanafa lives in Okinawa with her grandmother who runs the "Kame Soba" soba shop, her beautiful older sister Nao who is in high school, and her younger sister Kokona, who is in elementary school and has a strong ability to sense the supernatural.

One day, Nanafa witnesses a seal fall off of a Chinese banyan tree, and three spirits who live in that tree are unleashed. These spirits include Niina and Raana, who are "jimunaa" spirits. The third spirit is Iina, who is an incarnation of an Okinawan lion statue. As spirits start appearing one after another, the peaceful life of Nanafa and her family begins to change.

The official website for the series is currently displaying the character designs for the main characters.

A partial list of cast members for the series includes:
