- Sonny Strait as Buer

Funimation is streaming the series with English subtitles as it airs in Japan, and describes the story:
From Shirow Masamune, the creator of Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed, comes the story of two cybernetically enhanced girls fighting to save their home. A super-powered terrorist has threatened the island of Cenancle. To fight him off, Nene Nanakorobi, a cybernetic girl-next-door, will have to team up with famous inventor Delilah Uzal and her adorably grumpy cyborg assistant, Clarion.
The series premiered on January 8.
Munenori Nawa (D.C.S.S. ~Da Capo Second Season~, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Kiss×sis) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ, and Tatsuya Takahashi (THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e!, The Fruit of Grisaia) is writing the script. Takuya Tani (Strike Witches, Persona 3 The Movie #1 Spring of Birth animation director) is designing the characters, and TECHNOBOYS PULCRAFT GREEN-FUND is composing the music.
Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell) and Koushi Rikudou (Excel Saga) launched the manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype Ace magazine in 2012. Shirow is responsible for the story, while Rikudou is drawing the art. After Newtype Ace ceased publication in 2013, the manga then moved to Kadokawa's Niconico Ace website. Kadokawa published the seventh volume in Japan last December. Seven Seas Entertainment published the third English volume on January 12.
