Though she has a love for fairy tale heroines, she’s never done anything extraordinary with her life. One day, she sees the transfer student, Hana dancing in the moonlight. Naru becomes inspired by her new acquaintance and decides to learn Yosakoi dancing.”

Leraldo Anzaldua, Christopher Ayres, Amanda L. Baird, Joanne Bonasso and Cayla Coats will also voice additional characters. Christopher Ayres will be directing the English dub. The series is based on the manga series by Sou Hamayumiba. Madhouse animated this adaptation.
