SILVER LINK (Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Non Non Biyori) is producing the animation.

Two Kadokawa brands, Fujimi Shobo and Media Factory, released the Ange Vierge trading card game in 2013. The story of the card game follows what happens when "Hairō" portals suddenly open, fusing three different worlds together. As a result, various mysterious "Exceed" powers are awakened in teenaged girls. An academy for these so-called "Progress" girls is built on the isolated Seiran Island in the Pacific.
