  • Konomi Kohara as Akane Mizuno, a young woman who is part of the track-and-field club at her middle school. She was raised in a happy-go-lucky household, and so she's boastful at home but shy outside of her house.
  • Atsushi Tamaru as Takumi Hira, the president of the track-and-field club. He is a true sportsman who has excellent grades, and he has made it to the prefectural tournament in short-distance running since his first year of middle school.

The four voice actors will appear at a stage event for the anime during the AnimeJapan 2017 event in March.

The anime will premiere in April. Seiji Kishi (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova, Persona 4: The Animation, Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace) is directing the anime, and Yuuko Kakihara (Orange, Persona 4: The Animation, Digimon Adventure tri.) is penning and supervising the anime's scripts. loundraw is drawing the original character designs. FlyingDog is in charge of music production.

The series focuses on characters Akane Mizuno and Kotarō Azumi, two third-year middle school students who become classmates for the first time. The series will depict the characters' growth and connection to the people around them, such as classmates, club-mates, teachers, and parents. The anime will also center on the youthful adolescent romance of the characters, who are hounded by change and uncertainty as the seasons inevitably pass.
