The TV Drama will be broadcast on MBS and TBS in early April and the movie will be released in Japanese cinemas on 15 May 2020.

Midori ( Saito Asuka), Tsubame (Yamashita Mizuki) and Sayaka (Umezawa Minami) are an energetic trio of high school girls who meet at Eizouken (video club) to realize their anime dreams. Midori is too nervous to shoot an anime alone. She meets Tsubame, who seems to be a wealthy girl with ambitions to become an animator. Midori’s best friend Sayaka has the financial talent to make the project a success and joins the couple.
