Media Factory began streaming the first promotional video on Sunday for the television anime adaptation of Chūgaku Akamatsu and Kobuichi's Aria the Scarlet Ammo Double A (Hidan no Aria AA) manga.

Takashi Kawabata (episode director for Puella Magi Madoka Magica, A Certain Scientific Railgun) is directing the series at Doga Kobo. Fumihiko Shimo (Air, Infinite Stratos, Kanon) is handling the series composition, Miwa Oshima (The Story of Saiunkoku, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is adapting Kobuichi's character designs for animation, Mariko Kubo (A Bridge to the Starry Skies, High School DxD) and Chisato Kikunaga (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun) are chief animation directors, Takurō Iga is composing the music, and Flying Dog is producing the music.

The story revolves around Akari Mamiya, a first-year E-rank student at Tokyo Butei High School who aims to become a Butei and idolizes her S-rank upperclassman Aria H. Kanzaki. The high school has an "Amica" system where one upperclassman is paired with one underclassmen for training, and the manga follows Akari as she strives to get Aria to become her Amica.

Akamatsu and Kobuichi launched the manga in Young Gangan in 2010. Square Enix published the ninth compiled volume in Japan in January.

Akamatsu's original Aria the Scarlet Ammo (Hidan no Aria) novels inspired an anime in 2011. Funimation licensed the anime for simultaneous streaming and home video release.
