The video features the first look at the characters in motion, and also previews the anime's theme song "GRAVITIC-LOVE" by the in-story unit Six Gravity (composed of Kenn, Kousuke Toriumi, Tomoaki Maeno, Toshiki Masuda, Yoshimasa Hosoya, and Yuuki Kaji), and reveals the anime's July 6 premiere on Tokyo MX, BS Sky Perfect, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, BS11, and TV Aichi. The series will also stream on d Anime Store and Animate Channel.
The anime's official Twitter account also posted a new visual for the anime.
A special program will air on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and TV Aichi on June 29 before the anime airs, and it will feature Shouta Aoi and Wataru Hatano introducing the series.
The anime's theme song single will ship on August 26, and will contain two theme songs, one of which is the "GRAVITIC-LOVE" song by Six Gravity, and another as-yet untitled song from Procellarum, as well as the instrumental versions of both songs. A limited edition of the single will bundle a stuffed toy of the franchise's mascot, Shirota.
