The company will stream the series on select digital outlets this summer with a home video release to follow. Sentai Filmworks holds the license to the series in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Spain, Portugal, and Latin America.
The show stars:

Takeo Takahashi (Hinako Note, The Island of Giant Insects) is chief director, and Hijiri Sanpei (episode director for MAOYU, Magic Kaito: Kid the Phantom Thief) is directing the anime at Passione. Masahiro Yokotani (All Out!!, Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club) is in charge of series composition. Sachiko Yasuda (Seven Mortal Sins) is in charge of character designs and is chief animation director. Tomoki Kikuya (Hidamari Sketch, Squid Girl) is composing the music.
Akasaki, Tomatsu, and Toyosaki will perform the theme songs. The opening theme song is "Wa! Moon! dass! cry!," and the ending theme song is "Seishun no Reverb" (Youth Reverberation).
The manga centers on three girls: Tanaka, nicknamed "Idiot" for her low test scores; Kikuchi, nicknamed "Ota" for her obsession with boys-love stories; and Saginomiya, nicknamed "Robot" for being a genius but emotionless. Together with a colorful cast of characters, the hopeless girls live wasteful days of youth.
