BONES is once again animating the series. Shigehito Takayanagi (Galaxy Angel A, The World God Only Knows, Dagashi Kashi) is taking over as director of the anime from the previous season's Rie Matsumoto, and Yasuko Kamo (Dagashi Kashi) is also taking over series composition duties from Kazunao Furuya. Toshihiro Kawamoto is returning as character designer and chief animation director, and Taisei Iwasaki is returning to compose the music. The main cast is also returning from the first season.

The first television anime series adaptation premiered in April 2015 and ran for 12 episodes. The 12th and final episode aired in October 2015 after a delay. Funimation streamed the anime with English subtitles as it aired in Japan. The company also streamed an English broadcast dub of the series.

Blood Blockade Battlefront also inspired an original anime DVD (OAD) that shipped with the Blood Blockade Battlefront Binge Bible guidebook on June 3. Matsumoto also directed the OAD.
