The staff will reveal more cast members at the end of this month.

The anime will premiere in January and will air on Tokyo MX, MBS, and BS11.

Ryo Ando (chief episode director for both seasons of GATE) is making his directorial debut with the series at A-1 Pictures. Takao Yoshioka (Elfen Lied, Ikki Tousen, The Familiar of Zero) is both writing and overseeing the scripts. Tetsuya Kawakami (The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water) is designing the characters, and Masaru Yokoyama (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Garakowa -Restore the World-, BBK/BRNK) is composing the music.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Monsters of legend walk among us, going by the name “demi-humans.” Ever since he's discovered the “demis,” one young man has become obsessed with them. So when he gets a job as a teacher at a high school for demi-girls, it's a dream come true! But these demis, who include a rambunctious vampire, a bashful headless girl, and a succubus, have all the problems normal teenagers have, on top of their supernatural conditions. How to handle a classroom full of them?!

Kodansha published the manga's fourth volume in Japan on September 20. Kodansha Comics released the manga's first volume in English on November 1, and will release the second volume on January 17.
