The show will star:

Azumi Waki as Ao Horie

Junta Terashima as Takumi Kijima

Kenjiro Tsuda as Kasaki Horie

Keisuke Inoue (episode director for Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Masamune-kun's Revenge, Two Car) is directing the anime at SILVER LINK Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, Children of the Whales, Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san) is in charge of series scripts. Miwa Oshima (The Story of Saiunkoku, Koihime Musō, Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA) is designing the characters.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the story:

When Ao was in kindergarten, she smiled ear-to-ear as she told her classmates how her father (a bestselling erotic author) chose her name: “A as in apple and O as in orgy!” That day still haunts her ten years later as she studies with a single goal in mind: get into an elite university and achieve independence from her father once and for all. She has no youth to misspend and no time to think about boys … until her classmate, “King Normie” Kijima, approaches her with a shocking confession of love. She tries to lose Kijima, but he just can't take a hint … and as her mind runs wild with impure thoughts, she realizes her father has totally influenced her!

Kawahara launched the manga in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge in October 2015, and ended the manga on December 17. Kawahara will launch a sequel manga in the same magazine on January 17 that centers on a "slightly more grown-up" Ao-chan. Kodansha published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on September 14. Kodansha Comics released the third volume on December 25.
