The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS NTV on July 7.

Masahiko Ohta (Minami-ke, Yuruyuri, Gabriel DropOut) is directing the anime at Wit Studio. Joining Ohta is his frequent collaborators Takashi Aoshima, who is writing and supervising the series scripts, and Yasuhiro Misawa, who is composing the music. Ayumu Tsujimura is designing the characters.

Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English, and describes the story:

No one knows Torako used to be a delinquent. All of her classmates only know her as the perfect student. But everything changes when Nokotan, a transfer student with antlers, enters her life. Antlers aren't the only thing strange about Nokotan. Her deer nose can sniff out Torako's secret past! Whether it's at school or the zoo, chaos follows this doe-eyed girl's every step. Torako has so many questions! Is Nokotan a deer, a girl, or something in-between?

Oshioshio launched the manga in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge in November 2019. Kodansha published the manga's second compiled book volume on February 17. The manga moved to the Magazine Pocket app in December 2023 after Shonen Magazine Edge ended publication in October 2023. Kodansha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on May 9. Seven Seas Entertainment released the fourth volume in October 2023.
