The original game revolves around "Stride," an extreme sport that involves six people on one team who run relay races through towns. Hōnan Academy and other schools compete to win eastern Japan's top Stride competition, "End of Summer."

The series revolves around a closed-down "Stride" club at Hōnan Academy. First-year high school students Takeru Fujiwara and Nana Sakurai attempt to restart the club, but they must recruit six members for the team. They ask Riku Yagami to join, but he turns them down by saying that Stride is the one thing he doesn't want to do. However, Takeru and Nana drag Riku into the clubroom to try to convince him.

Shūji Sogabe [FiFS] is credited with the original design works for the series. Kanako Nono [FiFS] is credited with the original character design, and Tomoyuki Uchikoga is credited with the original graphic design. Atsuko Ishizuka (Hanayamata, No Game, No Life, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) is directing the series at Madhouse. Taku Kishimoto (Silver Spoon, Haikyu!!, Bunny Drop) is handling the series composition, and Kokunen Ou (Hanayamata) is adapting Nono's character designs for animation.

Kadokawa Games released the game for the PlayStation Vita on July 30. The game franchise also includes a "visual novel series" (light novels with many illustrations) by various authors and a drama CD. Kadokawa released the fourth visual novel in the series on August 21.
