A press release from the publisher shishokan announced that the autobiographical manga written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, Hyakushou Kizoku (The Peasant Noble), will have an anime adaptation. The announcement was revealed during an exhibition event for the manga held at the Tokyo University of Agriculture.

Arakawa continued to serialize the manga irregularly, while the publisher published the seventh compiled book volume in October 2021 in Japan.
