Popular voice actors Jun Fukuyama, Yūichi Nakamura, Akira Ishida, and Tetsuya Kakihara will play Types A, B, O, and AB, respectively, in the anime.
Yoshihisa Oyama (director of photography on Aku no Hana, Say, "I Love You".) is helming the anime at the studios Assez Finaud Fabric. and feel. Kenichi Yamashita (Ishida and Asakura, Yumeiro Pâtissière) is writing the scripts, and Dax Production is charge of sound. Earth Star Entertainment published three manga volumes by "Real Crazy Man" since last July.
The anime will premiere on Sunday on the Tokyo MX TV station, and then it will run on the AT-X channel and on the streaming service Niconico in Japan.
