Aniplex announced the So-Ra-No-Wo-To project in July of 2009. The series premiered in January of 2010 as the first anime series in Aniplex and TV Tokyo's joint Anime no Chikara project. North American media distributor Crunchyroll simulcasted the series in multiple regions, including the United States and Canada. Nozomi Entertainment announced its acquisition of the series at Anime Expo last July.
