Studio GoHands is animating the series with Susumu Kudo acting as chief director and Katsumasa Yokomine as director.

Shion Wakayama is voicing the main character Ai Mie, while Masahiro Ito is playing the role of Kaede Komura. Tsuzuri is performing the opening song “Name” and the newly-formed trio Masayoshi ga Megane wo Wasureta (composed of Masayoshi Oishi, Masahiro Ito, and Shion Wakayama) is singing the ending song titled “Megane Go Round.” A creditless version of both the theme songs’ videos was also released.
Bilibili describes the plot as follows:
Due to the reclassification, Mie, who is seated next to him, is a favorite of Komura’s. Komura does learn one day that Mie’s eyes have changed to be exceedingly aggressive. Komura attempted to assist Mie, who was having trouble seeing well, but it turned out that she had just forgotten her spectacles. Just that Mie had more than one day without remembering to wear her spectacles. Can Komura’s heart handle the pressure of having to deal with a variety of close encounters brought on by Mie’s poor eyesight?
