The series will premiere on MBS on October 25 at 24:50 (effectively on October 26 at 12:50 a.m.), and then it will play on TBS on October 27 at 25:11. Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl, Nuigurumaa Z) is directing the late-night series at the production studio ROBOT.

North American publisher Yen Press prints the Akira Hiramoto's original manga in North America, and it describes the series:

Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls' boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo...once upon a time. But with the new school year comes a revision to school policy: Boys are to be admitted into the student body for the first time ever. But on his first day at Hachimitsu, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he's one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Their numbers overwhelmed by the thousand girls in the student body, is it heaven or hell that awaits these five (un)fortunates?!

Hiramoto launched the manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine in February 2011, and it has 6 million copies in print. The 18th volume shipped on August 6. The manga won the Best General Manga award alongside Yūji Moritaka and Keiji Adachi's Gurazeni manga at Kodansha's 37th Annual Manga Awards last year.

The manga also inspired a 12-episode television anime, and Funimation streamed the anime as it aired.
