The anime will star:
Although the younger Meguru can't believe that the older one came from the future, she fights alongside her in a dimensional robot. After fighting with Rei, she finds out that even though the other Meguru is older than her, she is Meguru Tokio's descendant. After finding out that someone has jumped into the past by the older Meguru's history surveillance device, the two also make a leap back into the past.
Brains Base previously announced in October that it will release an eight-minute promotional video for the project. The video will be bundled on DVD with a booklet with character designs, storyboards, key animation sketches, an original manga, and other materials. The booklet will be 80 pages long with a full-color cover and black-and-white interior pages. It will retail for 1,500 yen (about US$14) in a limited run of 300.
