In the show's story, 12 years ago, in the country of Rimguard, a big incident left an unsolved mystery that has begun to fade from people's memories. Time passes, and sisters Yui and Rena are living peacefully in the Enastria Empire. However, one day, a large mecha attacks Enastria. This day marks the turning point when the two girls get caught in the vortex of fate.
Susumu Tosaka (Infinite Stratos series director) directed the anime at Actas. Keigo Koyanagi (Go! Go! 575, Angel Beats setting production) handled the series composition. QP:flapper handled the original character design, Kimitake Nishio (Moetan, ToHeart2) served as the chief animation director and adapted those designs for animation, and Kanta Suzuki (Buddy Complex) handled the mechanical design.
