The TV anime is set to premiere in 2023. Kaori, who previously worked on YUYUSHUKI and The Quintessential Quintuplets II,  is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Natsuko Takahashi (Farewell, My Dear Cramer) and character designer/chief animation director Takahiro Sakai (YUKI YUNA IS A HERO). Studio Gokumi (Phantom of the Idol) works on anime production.


Director Kaori says, “Cute designs and very beautiful color pages! Although it is a four-panel manga, I felt the dramatic and bold panel layout and serious storyline were amazing and not the usual work of Kirara. I feel pressure to do my best to recreate that impression in the anime.” and “‘Cute!’ and ‘Tough!’ will come alternately, so I hope you will hold on to your feelings and look forward to the story of Umika and her friends.”

A dazzling coming-of-age story of “yuri” and “space” by up-and-coming author Rusuko Okuma.
