Kenichi Kasai will direct the anime at TYO Animations from scripts by Sawako Hirabayashi with series composition by Sawako Hirabayashi. Maki Fujioka is designing the characters, and Go Sakabe is composing the soundtrack for the series.
Ayuko Hatta's original shōjo manga centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyōya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog.
Kanae Itō will play Erika Shinohara in the anime, while Takahiro Sakurai will play Kyōya Sata. The rest of the cast includes:
- Ai Kayano as Ayumi Santa
- Mariya Ise as Marin Tachibana
- Mikako Komatsu as Aki Tezuka
- Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yoshito Kimura
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Nozomi Kamiya
- Yoshimasa Hosoya as Takeru Hibiya
- Ayumu Murase as Yū Kusakabe
The anime will premiere in October.
