Aoi Akashiro (Endride, KonoSuba) is in charge of series composition, and Yoshino Honda (The Lost Village, Astarotte's Toy animation director) is designing the characters. Takurō Iga (Aria the Scarlet Ammo Double A, Yuyake Dandan shorts) and West Ground (The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water, KanColle theme song composition) are composing the music.
The story, based on Kouji Seo's manga, centers on a young man named Yū Haruna who has just switched schools. He's a bit shy, and he's constantly glued to his smartphone so he can check Twitter. He meets a girl named Fūka Akitsuki, who doesn't even have a cell phone, is free-spirited, and naturally fascinates others. Yū recently has been getting back in touch via Twitter with his childhood friend Koyuki Hinashi, who is now a popular singer. One day Yū invites Fūka to one of Koyuki's concerts, and there the three meet for the first time. The story follows the love triangle between a love that started through electronics, and a love that didn't start through electronics. Fūka is the daughter of the protagonists from Seo's earlier manga Suzuka.
