Okada also wrote the anime adaptation’s scripts as well.
The anime aired throughout the Summer 2019 season, premiering in July of that year. Kodansha Comics describes the story as:
The girls in a high school literature club do a little icebreaker to get to know each other: answering the question, “What’s one thing you want to do before you die?” One of the girls blurts out, “Sex.” Little do they know, the whirlwind unleashed by that word pushes each of these girls, with different backgrounds and personalities, onto their own clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths toward adulthood.
Expect more details on the live-action TV drama in the days to come.
