The trailer reveals that Catchplay+ has added the anime for Indonesian users with both Indonesian and English subtitles, making it the first service anywhere in the world to have English subtitles officially available for the anime.

Catchplay+ streams new episodes of the anime every Monday, but is two episodes behind the Japanese broadcast. Indonesia is the third country in the world to have the anime available outside of Japan, after France and South Korea.

The anime's cast members include:

Kazuo Sakai (Love Live! Sunshine!!, Mushi-Uta) is directing the anime at Toei Animation. Jukki Hanada (Love Live! Sunshine!!) is handling the series composition. nari Teshima is designing the characters. Mari Kondō and Jae Hoon Jung are the CGI directors. Kenji Tamai (agehasprings, Sing "Yesterday" for Me, Samurai Flamenco) is composing the music. Yūsuke Tanaka (agehasprings) is credited for music accompaniment.

Toei Animation describes the anime:

The main character drops out of high school in her second year, and aims at entering a university while working alone in Tokyo. A girl is betrayed by her friends and doesn't know what to do. Another girl is abandoned by her parents, and tries to survive in the city by doing part-time jobs. This world lets us down all the time. Nothing goes as planned. But we want something that we can continue to like. We believe there's a place where we belong. That's why we sing.

Toei Animation is perhaps best known for its work in long-running anime series such as the yearly Precure magical girl series, One Piece, and classics such as Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Saint Seiya, and Slam Dunk. Some of its latest works include Soaring Sky! Pretty Cure and Tōsōchū: The Great Mission.
