The July issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine revealed on Friday that the Qualidea Code television anime series will premiere on July 9 at midnight (effectively July 10) on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11. The show will then air 30 minutes later on Chiba TV and tvk. The anime will also air on ABC Asahi Broadcasting, but the staff has not yet revealed the premiere date and time. The staff will also host a screening event for the first episode on July 2.
Speakeasy — the author unit made up of Sou Sagara (HENNEKO/The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.), Koushi Tachibana (Date A Live), and Wataru Watari (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) — is in charge of the original concept for the project alongside Marvelous. The three authors are also writing the anime's scripts.
Kenichi Kawamura (Rozen Maiden, SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Matsuryū (Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye, Shōjo-tachi wa Kōya o Mezasu) drew the original character designs, and Hisayuki Tabata (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Yuyushiki) is adapting those designs for animation. Taku Iwasaki (Gurren Lagann, Noragami, Soul Eater) is composing the music. LiSA will perform the opening theme song, ClariS will perform the first ending theme song, and GARNiDELiA will perform the second ending theme song.
The anime takes place in a world where humans are continuing to fight a war against an enemy called UNKNOWN. UNKNOWN invaded several decades ago, and children entered a cold sleep to escape the invasion. When the children awoke, they found themselves with supernatural powers. The children set up defense cities in Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba in order to protect the country from the UNKNOWN, who appear through the Tokyo Bay Gate.
