A synopsis for the series is provided by Sentai Filmworks:
College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyu agency managed by her older brother, Gojo. 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.
Girlish Number is set to air in Japan in October 2016. It will be made available in select digital outlets with a home video release set to follow.
