Staff on this one includes Kotomi Deai (Natsume’s Book of Friends) as director and series composition writer, with Manami Umeshita (Stella Women’s Academy) on character designs/animation direction and Takatsugu Wakabayashi (Dragonar Academy) composing music for the P.A. Works production. 

Among the main cast members are Tomoyo Kurosawa as Mitsumi Iwakura and Akinori Egoshi as Sosuke Shima. 

Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the manga in English. Here’s how Crunchyroll sums up the story:

Iwakura Mitsumi graduated from a small middle school in the countryside and entered a top-tier high school in Tokyo at the head of the class. This child prodigy, who moved to Tokyo alone with a perfect life plan, is smart and gets good grades… but her social understanding isn’t quite on the same wavelength as others. This means that she sometimes makes mistakes, but her easygoing nature sways her classmates little by little, and all their different personalities are coming together before they know it. They meet and gradually come to know each other, and before long they understand each other well. Everyone experiences pent-up feelings and frustrations, but it is our friends who give us a chance at mutual understanding. This story may start out with some discord, but it becomes a happy school-life comedy before you know it!
