The anime's taglines read, "To those 'adults' who don't want to become adults..." and "Hero will never give up, never hide, never be defeated, never accept evil." The anime will air for half a year.

The official website for the series also revealed character designs and descriptions:

Masayoshi Hazama: 19 years old. A model for a male fashion magazine. His grandfather loved tokusatsu (special effects) hero shows, and that love rubbed off onto him, and he has longed to be a hero since he was a child. At long last due to his grandfather's invention he debuts as the new hero "Samurai Flamenco." Will he be the one to bring down the hammer of justice on the evil of the world?

Hidenori Goto: 24 years old. Currently serving as a policeman. He's very diligent in his work as a policeman, but privately he doesn't particularly have a strong sense of justice. He is a very normal young man. One day by chance, he encounters Samurai Flamenco, and afterward his days become busy.

Mari Maya: 18 years old. Central member of the "Mineral Miracle Muse" idol group. A talented young woman who composes and writes lyrics. A bright and energetic mood-maker who is able to connect with anyone without discrimination.

Moe Morita: 17 years old. Member of "Mineral Miracle Muse." A high school student with a reserved and carefree personality. A native English speaker.

Mizuki Misawa: 19 years old. Leader of "Mineral Miracle Muse." From Kansai. Takes care of people and holds the group together.

The official website for Galilei Donna - Storia di tre sorelle a caccia di un mistero also updated to reveal a new key visual and character descriptions:

The characters and descriptions are as follows:
  • Shishiino (top left): Young leader of the air pirate troupe "Black Ganymede Troupe."
  • Roberto (top right): The eldest son of the chief executive of the world-famous company "Adonimoon Company."
  • Anna (top center): A woman who is enchanted by the things Galileo Galilei left behind and chases their puzzles. Self-described "Galileo Maniac."
