Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,
“Kyotaro Ichikawa is a disgruntled loner student who fantasizes about murdering his popular classmates, often reading a murder encyclopedia and learning about human anatomy, with the class idol, Anna Yamada, being his prime target. However, when he observes that Anna is rather quirky in her own way, and when she becomes increasingly friendly towards Kyotaro, he gradually warms up to her and they start to become closer.”
The anime is based on a 2018 manga series created by Norio Sakurai and released by the Japanese publisher Akita Shoten who serializes it in their ‘Manga Cross’ magazine. Seven Seas Entertainment releases it in North America.
