A flyer from Kadokawa's booth at the AnimeJapan 2018 event revealed on Thursday that SILVER LINK's Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari (Butlers: A Millennium Century Story) television anime will air for 12 episodes. The flyer also refers to the anime with the English title Butlers x Battlers.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS Kyoto, and Sun TV on April 11 after midnight (effectively on April 12 morning) at 1:05 a.m., 2:05 a.m., 1:05 a.m., and 1:30 a.m., respectively. The series will also air on BS11 on April 13 (effectively April 14 morning) at 1:00 a.m. and TVQ Broadcasting Kyushu on April 14 (effectively April 15 morning) at 2:25 a.m.
The anime was originally slated to premiere in January, but was delayed to April. The anime will have a special talk show event at AnimeJapan in Tokyo on Saturday at 2:10 p.m.
The anime centers on two protagonists. Koma Jinguji (Jay) is the smart and handsome student council president. His elegant smile captures the hearts of women. Tsubasa Hayakawa is a multi-talented and gentle shop assistant at a café. His cafe latte with owl latte art is very popular with female customers. The two men travel through time and are destined to be arch-enemies. The charming "Butlers," as they are called, fight supernatural battles and also experience a slapstick comedic life at their academy.
