Bob Shirohata (Hetalia - Axis Powers, Gravitation) will direct the series at Studio DEEN. Yoshiko Nakamura (Hakuōki, Junjō Romantica) will script the series, and Naoyuki Onda (Gantz, Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago) will adapt Yone Kazuki's (Hakuōki) original character designs and serve as the chief animation director.

The cast for the original game, aside from the protagonist, are reprising their roles for the anime series. The cast is as follows:

The first Hiiro no Kakera otome game (game for female players) shipped in Japan in 2006, and there have been three follow-up games since. The original game centered around Tamaki Kasuga, a 17-year-old high school girl. When her parents have to go overseas for work, Tamaki moves to her mother's hometown in the mountains with her grandmother. On the day that Tamaki arrives at the village, she encounters strange creatures, only to be saved by a mysterious boy. The boy, Takuma Onizaki, is the first of five Guardians of the Tamayohime that Tamaki meets.
