Animation studio Pine Jam is also on the project. Pine Jam is known for their work on Gleipnir, Gamers!, and Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara. Yuusuke Matsuo is the character designer for the series, his prior projects include Black Rock Shooter, Encouragement of Climb, and The [email protected] Cinderella Girls.
Do It Yourself!! is the latest in a subgenre of slice of life that features girls engaging in hobbies (typically outdoorsy ones). Other series with similar themes include Encouragement of Climb (a series about girls mountain climbing), Laid-Back Camp (a series about girls camping), and Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater (a series about girls going fishing).
These series tend to be almost as informative as they are entertaining and traditionally go out of their way to realistically portray the hobbies they’re representing.
An image featuring the main characters designed by Yuusuke Matsuo has been released on the official site and can be found below.

At the time of publishing, neither the voice cast or the release date has been announced.
