The series will star:
The opening theme song to the anime will be performed by vocalist Maon Kurosaki (A Certain Magical Index II, Strike the Blood), while voice actress and fripside vocalist Yoshino Nanjou (Love Live! School Idol Project, Senki Zesshō Symphogear G) will perform the ending theme.
Tensho (Kin-iro Mosaic) is directing the series at 8-Bit with character designs and chief animation direction by Akio Watanabe (Monogatari Series Second Season, The World God Only Knows). Elements Garden is composing the music for the soundtrack.
The story of the anime takes place at the private Mihama Academy, where five girls who seem normal attend the school due to "certain reasons." A sixth student "with reasons" named Yūji Kazami transfers in. Yūji has an ego with such darkness that he does not fade in comparison to the five girls, who are so different from the norm. As they each meet each other, they deepen their understanding of one another. Through the small bits of progress they make, each of their hearts will be affected. When Yūji arrives, a story of girls who are trapped by their pasts begins.
The series will premiere on Japan's Tokyo MX and other related channels on October 5.
