The series premiered in Japan on July 8, and Funimation is streaming the series with English subtitles as it airs in Japan.
Funimation describes the series:
Forced to retreat to floating cities due to an invasion of magical armored insects, humanity must now depend on Sky Wizards to battle the menace via mid-air battles. Once known as the “Black Master Swordsman,” Kanata Age is now considered a traitor and is assigned to lead an F-class of mismatched mages. Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she's failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she's a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition but zero confidence. It's up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.
Takayuki Inagaki (Rosario + Vampire, My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) is directing the series at Diomedea (Gingitsune, Astarotte's Toy) with series composition by Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Rosario + Vampire, ToHeart2).
