The Road to Dreams is a grind that proves to be hilarious
Official website for Kadokawa ‘s initial Maesetsu TV anime! The third promotional anime video started streaming on Saturday. The video comes one day before the anime premiere on Sunday, complete with an opening crawl reminiscent of a story told a long time ago.
Maesetsu! is a collaboration between Lucky Star creator Kagami Yoshimizu and Studio Gokumi, following four duos of college-aged comedians aiming for their big break on the stage. The new PV kicks off with a Star Wars scroll before launching into the comedy. (Crunchyroll)
Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ. Mugendai∞ is credited with the original work, and Lucky Star manga author Kagami Yoshimizu is credited with the original illustrations. Touko Machida (DIVE!!, Wake Up, Girls!) is in charge of series composition, and she is writing the scripts with Shōta Gotō and Joe Itou (Nichijō, Lucky Star).

Masaru Koseki (Ms. Koizumi loves ramen noodles, Demon King Daimao) and Naoki Yamauchi (animation director for Bleach, Chronicles of the Going Home Club) are the chief animation directors.
The anime will premiere on October 4 on AT-X at 11:30 p.m. and then debut on TOKYO MX later that night at 12:30 a.m. (effectively October 5).
