Aniplex of America began streaming an trailer for the television anime of the 22/7 idol project on Friday. The video is an English-subtitled version of a promotional video that the anime's Twitter account began streaming in September.

The anime will premiere in January 2020.

Takao Abo (The Rising of The Shield Hero, Norn9) is directing the series at A-1 Pictures. Chiaki Nagai (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, Utano☆Princesama Legend Star) and Reiji Miyajima (Rent-A-Girlfriend, Mononote - Edo Shinobi Kagyō manga) are in charge of series composition. Majiro (Macross Delta, Barakamon) is handling character designs and serving as chief animation director. Akira Takata (Durarara!!, After the Rain) and Satomi Tamura (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl) are also chief animation directors.

The group announced in July 2017 that they were getting an anime project. The group began releasing animated music videos in 2017, and their first character videos debuted in English in May 2018.

AKB48 founder and producer Yasushi Akimoto is producing the "dimension-crossing" idol group. The group based on the concept of "idols who cross dimensions" has eight anime idol characters, with their respective voice actresses performing as idols in the real world. A different character designer is handling each member's anime design. Sony Music Records and Aniplex received 10,325 applications for the idol group and held five rounds of auditions.
