Takudai Kakuchi is directing the anime, which is his directorial debut. He previously directed single episodes on titles such as March Comes in like a Lion and My Hero Academia.

The isolationist all-girls Akane Clan mainly consists of young kunoichi in training. Their teachings are strict and there is one rule they all must follow: Interacting with men is forbidden, as they are dangerous creatures. However, a trainee Kunoichi Tsubaki suddenly starts feeling strange… It’s like her heart flickers whenever the subject of boys comes up.
