The anime is set to premiere on Tokyo MX and BS NTV on July 7.
Masahiko Ohta (Minami-ke, Yuruyuri, Gabriel DropOut) is directing the anime at Wit Studio. Joining Ohta are frequent collaborators Takashi Aoshima, who is writing and supervising the series scripts, and Yasuhiro Misawa, who is composing the music. Ayumu Tsujimura is designing the characters.

Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English and describes the story:

No one knows Torako used to be a delinquent. All of her classmates only know her as the perfect student. But everything changes when Nokotan, a transfer student with antlers, enters her life. Antlers aren’t the only strange thing about Nokotan. Her deer nose can sniff out Torako’s secret past! Whether it’s at school or the zoo, chaos follows this doe-eyed girl’s every step. Torako has so many questions! Is Nokotan a deer, a girl, or something in-between?

Oshioshio launched the manga in Kodansha‘s Shonen Magazine Edge in November 2019.
