In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.

Shoto Ihata will direct the anime adaptation and diomedéa will produce the show. Shoto Ihata is known for working on Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Rising. Diomedéa has produced shows such as Kantai Collection and Squid Girl.
