Katsushi Sakurabi (Flying Witch, Lostorage incited WIXOSS, Heaven's Memo Pad) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Fumihiko Takayama (Yomigaeru Sora - RESCUE WINGS, Sword of the Stranger, Sweet Blue Flowers) is supervising the series' scripts. The pair previously worked together on the Gunparade March anime. Kazunori Iwakura (Ai Yori Aoshi, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Sky Girls) is drawing the character designs for animation. TO-MAS (Flip Flappers) is handling the music.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

A group of young girls possess a mysterious power known as "Alice's Dream," which gives them the ability to turn their thoughts into reality. Detained and experimented upon, these youths are locked away in secret until one of them manages to escape. Her name is Sana—a girl with the power to ignore the very laws of physics. When this willful powerhouse crosses paths with a stubborn old man named Zouroku, his carefully-ordered life will never be the same again!

Imai launched the manga in the December 2012 issue of Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū magazine, and Tokuma Shoten published the seventh compiled book volume of the manga in November. The manga won the New Face Award in the 17th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2013.
