Mugendai∞ is credited with the original work, and Lucky Star manga author Kagami Yoshimizu is credited with the original illustrations. Touko Machida (DIVE!!, Wake Up, Girls!) is in charge of series composition, and she is writing the scripts with Shōta Gotō and Joe Itou (Nichijō, Lucky Star). Katsuzo Hirata (Ben-To, Angel Beats!) is designing the characters for the anime.

Yoshimizu is drawing a four-panel manga for the project, and also drew the above visual for the project.

The project centers on four girls at the height of their youth, attempting to achieve their dreams even as they struggle gallantly.

Yoshimizu put his Lucky Star manga on hiatus in 2014 due to a "new project" that was then under planning. Until then, the manga had been running in Comptiq since the magazine's January 2004 issue. Kadokawa has published 10 volumes for the manga.
