Maiden Japan describes the series as follows:

A totally ordinary art club at the totally ordinary Tsukimori Middle School. There, Subaru Uchimaki squanders his artistic talent on his true passion and life’s mission: drawing the ideal “2D wife.” Club member Mizuki Usami finds herself with a crush on the hopeless Uchimaki. The seemingly uninterested club president is always sleeping, but he keeps a close eye on Uchimaki and Usami’s antics. Then there’s the mysterious Colette, who’s usually lost in her own little world. When this ragtag bunch gathers together as the Art Club, there’s sure to be some problems…

This Art Club Has a Problem! originally aired in Japan from July 2016 to September 2016 for 12 episodes. Maiden Japan will stream the series on select digital outlets and release the series on home video at a later date.
