The anime is premiering in April.
Akitaro Daichi (Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, Fruits Basket) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage, Umineko - When They Cry). Daisuke Fujiwara of MU-STARS will produce the music.
The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.
The manga series began weekly serialization on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November 2014. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant).
The manga is also serialized monthly in Shueisha's Men's Non No fashion magazine. Shueisha published the fifth compiled volume of the manga on January 4.
