Additionally, a manga adaptation by Niko Fujii premiered on Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app on April 7.

The anime made its debut on April 6. HIDIVE is streaming the anime.

The original work is credited to JELEE, with Ryohei Takeshita (known for “Eromanga Sensei”) directing the series at Doga Kobo. The original character designs are by popman3580, and Junichirō Taniguchi (known for “Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story,” “Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru”) is adapting those designs for animation. Yūki Yaku, the author of the “Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki” light novel series, is writing and overseeing the series scripts.

KanoeRana performs the anime’s opening theme song titled “Irodori” (meaning “coloring”), while female singer Anna Tsurushima performs the ending theme song “Ichi-nichi wa 25-jikan” (translated as “A Day Is 25 Hours”). Musician 40mP produces an insert song for the anonymous artist “JELEE” in the anime’s story. Pop pianist and YouTuber Haramichan is responsible for piano performances heard in the series.

HIDIVE describes the series:

Shibuya is a city full of identity. It is here on Shibuya’s late night streets that illustrator Mahiru Kozuki, former idol Kano Yamanouchi, Vtuber Kiui Watase and composer Mei Kim Anouk Takanashi — four young women who are slightly outside the world — join together and form an anonymous artist group called JELEE. “I” also want to shine like someone else. If it’s not me but “we” then we might be able to shine.
