Masatoshi Yamaguchi is directing the series. The series stars Jirō Satō as Yuzuru Nōjima, Nogizaka 46's Mai Shiraishi as Ayako Tsuki, and Takayuki Yamada as Oasis. The names have been changed from the original manga, where the characters were named Akira Nōjima, Michiko Tsuki, and Paradiso. In addition, Saki Tateno plays Shiina.
A separate live-action series starring Ryuuji Akiyama, Chikara Honda, and Aya Asahina premiered on AbemaTV in January.
The manga's story centers on the titular "committee," comprised of a martial artist, a musician, and an executive, who listen to the stories of clients who come in to hear their judgement. Clients come in and tell their stories about their romantic lives, focusing on points where they think they might have had sex, but ended up not doing it. The committee then delivers their judgement on whether or not they think the client might have actually ended up having sex at that point if something had been different.
Yoshida launched the manga in April 2016 on the note website, and he also publishes the series in Shuho Sato's Manga on Web web magazine, and on the websites cake and PixivFANBOX. Yoshida asks readers to send in their own stories, which he then portrays in the manga.
Futabasha published the manga's second compiled book volume on March 30.
