Ebiten: Kouritsu Ebisugawa Koukou Tenmonbu (henceforth Ebiten), written by Sugachi with illustrations by Kira Inugami, has been busy getting turned into an anime since sometime before last December. Now we can see of the some fruits as well as who actually labored.
First, meet the characters below:
He's a kind of cute, introverted transfer student who just wanted to join the astronomy club, but due to a misunderstanding, he ends up in an all-girl otaku club as the plaything of Kyōko and co. (which perhaps explains why he's wearing a dress...)
The troublemaker of the club, and the type to immediately do anything she thinks sounds interesting. She remodeled the school's basement astronomy club room to suit her club's purposes. [Note: The names of both clubs are "tenmonbu;" just one kanji different, but same pronunciation.] Her hobby is sexually harassing Kanamori. She likes candy and scents.
She loves boys love and cosplay. She's also into the admiration, preservation, and propagation of doujinshi, as a matter of course. Has a habit of classifying things as "top" or "bottom."
Has a quiet and docile personality. She's comparitively straightforward and hates stupid nonsense—the straightman of the club. However, when it comes to cats, she has an extreme fetish and loses all common sense. Her hobby is tarot reading.
The assistant director of the club. At first glance she's seems the graceful type, but she's actually quite the fighter—her special move is the Iron Claw. Even Kyoko is no match for her. She's the club's defense against student council president Iseda's attacks.
The president of the school's student council. Apparently once the president of the astronomy club, somehow she was fated to quit. She's made the "other" tenmonbu her enemy and is trying to get them shut down. That said, she goes all tsundere for Ōba (possibly due to the way Ōba will not stand for her notifications of club rejection).
Staff on Ebiten is as follows (in addition to the creators, Sugachi and Kira Inugami):
Direction: Hideki Okamoto (Sengoku Shoujo Momoiro Paradox, Amagami SS+plus)
Series Composition: Yuuko Kakihara (script for Chihayafuru, series composition and script for Persona 4 The Animation)
Character Design: Atsuko Watanabe (opening key art for Hunter x Hunter, character designs for Acchi Kocchi)
Sound Direction: Jin Aketagawa (Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne, Bodacious Space Pirates)

Somehow I'm feeling compelled to watch just to see how it is that Itsuki ends up in a dress, but what are you guys feeling on this show? No news on an air date just yet.
