The anime will premiere in spring 2019 on television and will stream online. Humikane Shimada and Projekt Kagonish are credited with the original work.
Fumio Ito (episode director for Rage of Bahamut: Genesis, School-Live!, Kino's Journey - the Beautiful World-) is directing the anime at acca effe and Giga Production, with Production I.G. and Anime Beans credited for collaborating on animation production. Shinya Murakami (Strike Witches 2, Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow, High School Fleet) returns for series literature.
