The limited releases were between January 11 and April 4, 2007, and the regular releases were between May 9 and August 8, 2007.[2] A single original video animation episodes was released on the final limited edition DVD. The cover art from the limited edition DVDs features art from the original visual novel.[2] Media Blasters released the series, including the OVA, as English-subtitled DVDs between June 24 and October 7, 2008 under the title Otoboku: Maidens Are Falling For Me!.[1]

Two pieces of theme music are used for the episodes; one opening theme and one ending theme. The opening theme is "Love Power" by Aice5, and the ending theme is "Beautiful Day" by Yui Sakakibara.[1] The insert song "Again" by Sakakibara was used in episode eleven.
