Here is a synopsis of Jinsei from MAL:

Yuuki Akamatsu, who is in the Kyuumon Gakuen Second News Club, is asked to become the counselor of the club immediately after joining the club by Ayaka Nikaidou, the club leader. Three girls currently give advice to issues sent in by the students: Rino Endou from the science stream, Fumi Kujou from the literary stream, and Ikumi Suzuki from the sports stream. However, the three always have different opinions and cannot get their views to agree, so they just try things out anyway…

The anime adaptation of Jinsei will be airing this July, during the Summer 2014 anime season. More information about the anime, including the cast, will be releasing in the weeks leading up to the anime’s release.
