North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks announced last month that it has licensed the series. Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Girls from all over the country come to live in Meiro-cho for one reason: to train to become the top uranaishi – the Urara. One day, a 15-year-old girl named Chiya enters the gates, but she has another, secret reason for wanting to become an uranaishi. Together with three very different girls, Kon, Koume, and Nono, Chiya gets started as a fortune teller's apprentice.
Youhei Suzuki (SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist, The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Etotama, Noragami) is handling the series composition, and Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Non Non Biyori) is designing the characters for animation. Members of the anime's cast will perform the opening theme song "Yumeji Labyrinth" (Dreaming Labyrinth). The anime's ending theme song is "go to Romance>>>>>" by Luce Twinkle Wink☆.
