The anime is getting "original content" on TV Tokyo's new AniTele app, which launched on April 1. A second anime series is currently under production, but "may take some time." Yen Press has licensed Furai's manga adaptation.
The franchise is part of a multimedia project hat includes Nexon's original app game, which launched in early 2016 and ended service on December 14 — before the anime even premiered. Nexon announced in February that the app would not return despite the anime's popularity, but a spokesperson for Nexon later stated that the return of the smartphone app "is possible." In the RPG, animals around the world have transformed into girls and players could recruit them into their party for battle.
