Ayana Taketatsu will perform the opening theme song and denk!girls — a unit made up of voice actresses Natsumi Takamori, Minami Tsuda, Ayana Taketatsu, and Mai Aizawa — will perform the ending theme.

The anime is slated to premiere in October.

The "youthful bookstore comedy" revolves around the folks who work in a Manga Shop deep in a certain "Electric Town" neighborhood. ("Denki-Gai" or "Electric Town" is a popular name for shopping areas that specialize or used to specialize in electric and electronic items, like Tokyo's Akihabara.) The protagonist Umio works part-time at "BOOKS Umanohone" along with his senior at work (but not in age) Hiotan. As many dedicated manga fans visit the store, there is always something going on.

Mizu launched the manga in Monthly Comic Flapper in 2011, and Kadokawa's Media Factory shipped the seventh compiled volume in Japan this past May.
