Feckless high school student Tatara Fujita wants to be good at something - anything. Unfortunately, he's about as average as a slouchy teen can be. The local bullies know this, and make it a habit to hit him up for cash, but all that changes when the debonair Kaname Sengoku sends them packing. Sengoku's not the neighborhood watch, though. He's a professional ballroom dancer. And once Tatara Fujita gets pulled into the world of the ballroom, his life will never be the same.
Yoshimi Itazu (Pigtails director, animation director for Paranoia Agent, Miss Hokusai, Den-noh Coil) is directing the series at Production I.G. Kenichi Suemitsu (K, Tōken Ranbu, Isobe Isobee Monogatari ~Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo~ stage plays) is handling the series composition, Yuuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Death Parade, Robotics;Notes) is composing the music, and Takahiro Kishida (Haikyu!!, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the character designer.
