Yūya Kurokami and Karuna Kanzaki's seventh Armed Girl's Machiavellism manga volume will bundle an original anime Blu-ray Disc on November 25. The anime on the disc will share the same staff and cast as the television anime premiering in April.

The television anime will premiere on AT-X on April 5 at 11:00 p.m., and will then air on the Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, and BS11 channels. The show will stream in Japan on the d Anime Store.

The show stars:

Kento Shimoyama (Bleach, Naruto Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, Servant × Service) is supervising the series scripts, and Shoko Takimoto (BONJOUR Sweet Love Patisserie, Chaos Dragon, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus - Festival Eve Full of Swimsuits) is designing the characters. Team-MAX's Hiromi Mizutani (Hell Girl, Non Non Biyori, Toriko) is composing the music at Nippon Columbia.

Shortly after transferring he becomes a target of Rin Onigawara, a member of the Five Ruling Swords that commands the school. In order break free he must defeat the Five Ruling Swords.

Kanzaki began the series based on Kurokami's story in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in March 2014, and Kadokawa shipped the sixth compiled volume on March 25.
