Sentai Filmworks will release the series on a dual-audio Blu-ray Disc on October 30. The company describes the story:

High schooler Masahiro Setagawa is a fairly helpless delinquent, so much so that the neighborhood bullies use him to run their errands. His life changes when he meets high school teacher Kosuke Oshiba, a man whose fighting abilities have earned him a powerful reputation on the streets. Oshiba finds himself with a desire to protect Setagawa, and despite swearing that he's not interested in men, Setagawa finds himself getting more involved in Oshiba's affairs…

The anime premiered in Japan in July 2017, and Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike platform and the HIDIVE service streamed the series as it aired.

Yukina Hiiro (Gakuen Heaven, Chu-Bra!!) directed the anime at Encourage Films. Yūsei Naruse was in charge of the series scripts, and Ayana Nishino (Aquarion Logos) served as character designer and chief animation director. Wataru Hatano performed the opening theme song "Heart Signal." The anime's four main cast members — Tomoaki Maeno, Toshiki Masuda, Shinnosuke Tachibana, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka — performed the ending theme song.
