The original Kyousogiga original net animated series marked the first time Banpresto and Toei Animation collaborated together. The two companies launched the one-episode net anime in December 2011 on YouTube.
Banpresto and Toei then streamed the second five-episode net series Kyousogiga Dainidan between August and December 2012.
The new television anime has a website, but the site currently is just a test page.
Banpresto and Toei will host two events before the anime begins airing: one at the Chara Hobby 2013 event on September 1, and a stage event at the Kyoto International Manga and Anime Fair on September 8.
