The "story no one knows about a girl everyone knows" reimagines Yoshiko Tsushima, the school idol afflicted with chūnibyō (adolescent delusions of grandeur), as a fortune-telling girl. The story is set in Numazu, a scenic harbor town surrounded by the sea and mountains. Ever since she was little, the girl Yohane has never fit in, and has always felt apart from everyone in town. Her aspirations and true place in this world lie elsewhere. The story follows this girl who can't follow rules as she journeys through this wondrous world.
The returning cast includes:
- Aika Kobayashi as Yohane
- Kanako Takatsuki as Hanamaru
- Arisa Komiya as Dia
- Ai Furihata as Ruby
- Anju Inami as Chika
- Shuka Saitō as Yō
- Nanaka Suwa as Kanan
- Rikako Aida as Riko
- Aina Suzuki as Mari

Sunshine!! franchise to compose the music.
