Shueisha announced on Friday that HIRO's Akebi-chan no Sailor Fuku (Akebi's Sailor Uniform) manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

Miyuki Kuroki (Her Blue Sky, The Idolm@ster SideM) is directing the anime at studio CloverWorks. Rino Yamazaki (production advancement for Medaka Box, screenplay for DARLING in the FRANXX) is both writing and overseeing the series scripts, and Megumi Kouno (animation director for DARLING in the FRANXX, Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia) is designing the characters.
