The TV anime is set to premiere sometime in 2022.

Teppen—!!! manga is unrelated to Takaki Konari‘s 1993-1996 Teppen manga or its 1996 original video anime adaptation. The original manga Teppen-!!! is based on an original concept by an award-winning novelist named Inujun and illustrated by Namamugi.
The manga title had three exclamation marks, but that of the anime has been increased to 15. The coming-of-age story follows three high school girls who aspire to rise to the summit of the comedy world.
The series is described as such:
Yayoi Sakamoto, a diehard fan of comedians and comedy acts, enrolls in the private Kazuki High School in Nanba (Osaka’s entertainment district famous as the starting point for many comedians). She reunites with Yomogi Takahashi, a childhood friend who once formed the comedy duo “Konamonzu” with her when they were little. Before long, they find themselves putting together a routine at a park like they did before, in order to enter a local shopping area’s contest. At that moment, a mysterious girl calls out to them.
