Crunchyroll is releasing chapters of the manga in North America as Kodansha publishes them in Japan, and it describes the story:
Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!
Hiroshi Ishiodori (Peach Girl, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino) is directing the anime at Brains Base. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Dagashikashi) is in charge of series composition. Kazuhiko Tamura (Gunparade Orchestra, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~, Kyōkai no Rinne) is designing the characters for animation. Mina Ōsawa (Actually, I Am…, Nurse Witch Komugi R) is the chief animation director.
The band From4to7, a band composed of the anime's main male voice actors (Yuuki Ono, Keisuke Koumoto, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Nobunaga Shimazaki), is performing the anime's opening theme, "Prince x Prince" and Rie Murakawa is performing the ending theme, "Doki Doki no Kaze" (Heartbeat's Wind).
The anime will premiere late-night on TBS and CBC on October 6 at 1:58 a.m. and 2:54 a.m., respectively (effectively, October 7 on both times). It will then air on Sun TV on October 7, and BS-TBS on October 8. An advanced screening of the first episode will take place on September 19 at Tokyo's Kagaku Gijutsukan Science Hall.
Junko began the manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2013. Kodansha USA is publishing the series in North America.
