MYTH&ROID will perform the ending theme song "STYX HELIX." The group's single with the theme song will ship on May 25. MYTH&ROID has previously performed ending theme songs for Overlord and BBK/BRNK.
The anime's cast and character designs include:

Inori Minase as Rem
Rie Murakawa as Rum
Satomi Arai as Beatrice
The anime also stars Yūichi Nakamura as Reinhardt.
The series will premiere on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, and AT-X in April.
Masaharu Watanabe (Wakaba Girl director, episode director for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) is directing the anime at studio WHITE FOX. Masahiro Yokotani (Maria Holic, both seasons of Free!, SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist) is handling the series composition, and Kyuta Sakai (Steins;Gate, Sankarea: Undying Love, Humanity Has Declined) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director.
The anime is inspired by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka's light novel series of the same name, which Yen Press will publish in North America along with a manga adaptation. In the story, Subaru Natsuki is an ordinary high school student who is lost in an alternate world, where he is rescued by a beautiful, silver-haired girl. He stays near her to return the favor, but the destiny she is burdened with is more than Subaru can imagine. Enemies attack one by one, and both of them are killed. He then finds out he has the power to rewind death, back to the time he first came to this world. But only he remembers what has happened since.
