Based on a popular light novel by Hajime Kamoshida with original illustrations by Keji Mizoguchi, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai takes a supernatural look into the complexities of growing up in the modern age through a psychophysiological phenomenon known as the “puberty syndrome.” The series has been widely praised for its authenticity and fascinating approach on relatable social topics plaguing millennials such as cyber bullying, invasion of privacy, and falling victim to false gossip and rumors.

The series stars popular voice actor Kaito Ishikawa (My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!, One-Punch Man) as the protagonist, Sakuta Azusagawa, and Asami Seto (Chihayafuru, Bungo Stray Dogs) as the elusive bunny girl senpai, Mai Sakurajima. Sōichi Masui of Sakura Quest served as director for the series with Masahiro Yokotani (Free!, Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World- ) in charge of the series structure and screenplay. The series featured character design by Satomi Tamura of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend and Kiznaiver, who also served as chief animation director alongside veteran Akira Takata of the Durarara!!, Natsume's Book of Friends, and [email protected] series.

Aniplex of America recently announced that they will be hosting the North America premiere of the first and only feature length film of the series, Racal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl, at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 7, 2019.
