Crunchyroll started streaming the anime—which is directed by Miyuki Kuroki (THE iDOLM@STER SideM) and written by Rino Yamazaki (DARLING in the FRANXX)—on January 8, and describes it like so:

It’s Komichi Akebi’s first year of junior high and she has her heart set on one thing: Robai Private Academy’s sailor uniform.
