Based on the manga by Akihiko Higuchi, Otaku Elf is being directed by Takefumi Anzai (Hitoribocchi no Marumaruseikatsu) at studio C2C, alongside Shogo Yasukawa (The Executioner and Her Way of Life) as scriptwriter, Takeshi Oda (Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina) as character designer and chief animation director and Akito Matsuda (Sound! Euphonium) as music composer.


Seven Seas Entertainment, who publishes the manga’s official English version, describes the series as:


Koganei Koito works as the teenage shrine maiden at the Takamimi Shrine, catering to the whims of its resident: a centuries-old elf who loves video games as much as she hates going outside! Line up your offerings for the otaku elf—some energy drinks, chips and video games will do nicely—and watch her new friends scramble to keep up!


A release date for the anime is yet to be announced.
