The series is one of the many upcoming projects with the purpose of encouraging young people who like anime to be more involved with sports activity by fusing sports and anime. They are allegedly planning to develop other sports animation works such as soccer and table tennis, and it seems that they are considering creating a “sports idol universe” that shares the world view with other works. Virtual idol, Xu Xing You, the sister of Xu Xing Ze, will be the main character.
The series first was announced to start broadcast in March, but looks like it has been moved to 2022.
