The official website for the Robotics;Notes television anime series began streaming its second promotional video on Saturday.

The third "science adventure game" (after Chaos;HEAd and Steins;Gate) is set in an alternate future world after Tokyo's Shibuya district was destroyed in 2009, followed by the destruction of the Radio Kaikan building in Tokyo's Akihabara a year later. The world is immersed in realistic augmented reality technology in 2019, but a high school robotics club in danger of being disbanded after shrinking to just two members. The club's revival is tied to the robot it is building.
The game and anime's shared cast includes Ryohei Kimura (Kaito Yashio), Yoshino Nanjou (Akiho Senomiya), Rie Kugimiya (Airi), Kaori Nazuka (Frau Koujiro), Yoshimasa Hosoya (Subaru Hidaka), and Sora Tokui (Junna Daitoku). Kazuya Nomura (Sengoku Basara 2) is directing the anime at Production I.G. Jukki Hanada (My Ordinary Life, Sola, Steins;Gate) is in charge of the series scripts under the supervision of the game's Tatsuya Matsubara and Naotaka Hayashi. Chikashi Kubota (Shikabane Hime: Aka, From the New World) is adapting Tomonori Fukuda's original game character designs for the anime. The original game's Takeshi Abo is scoring the music with television composer Yūki Hayashi.
