The official website for the television anime of Meguru Ueno's Hajimete no Gal (First-Time Gal) manga revealed on Saturday that idol group Junjō no Afilia (formerly) Afilia Saga) will perform the anime's opening theme song "Hajimete no Season."
The anime will star:
- Shintarō Asanuma as Junichi Hashiba
- Yuki Nagaku as Yukana Yame
- Eri Kitamura as Ranko Honjō
- Ayana Taketatsu as Yui Kashii
- Yui Ogura as Shizune Fujinoki

Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President, Sin Strange Plus) is directing the anime and designing the characters at NAZ (Hamatora). Yūichirō Momose ("Sakura Internet Shinsei" net series) is handing series composition. Yashikin (Anime De Training! Xx!) is composing the music at MAGES.
Erabareshi will perform the show's ending theme song "Galtic Love."
The romantic comedy begins with Junichi "Jun" Hashiba, an uncool high school student who frets about wanting to lose his virginity. Egged on by his friends, Jun gets on his knees and confesses his love to a classmate named Yukana Yame. The confession surprisingly works and the couple goes out. However, Jun finds himself in uncharted waters with Yame, a trendy and fashion-conscious "gal" (gyaru).
Ueno launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine in November 2015. Kadokawa published the third volume on March 25.
