Anime Limited is listing a four-part release of Twin Star Exorcists, with the first part to be released on September 10.

While the listing specifies that product details are not confirmed, Part 1 is currently listed as a limited edition that will carry the first 13 episodes. It will include a slipcase that will carry all four of the eventual volumes. There will also be a standard DVD edition.

Crunchyroll described the story of the series:

Grotesque monsters known as Impurities reside in Magano, a realm parallel to the present day. Exorcists purify these evil apparitions to protect the people. Rokuro Enmadou is opposed to becoming an exorcist, even though he has the talent to be one, but an oracle gives him the title of "Twin Star Exorcist," the name bestowed upon married exorcists. Benio Adashino, the girl who receives the title along with Rokuro, is determined to exorcise all the Impurities in the world. The two find themselves wrapped up in more and more battles together as the Twin Star Exorcists, and as Rokuro watches Benio fight with the wish to become stronger, he's forced to face the weakness he's lived with ever since the Hiinatsuki Tragedy. Now that his eyes are turned toward the battle again, thanks to Benio, Rokuro makes up his mind to fight as an exorcist once more, and the Twin Star Exorcists take on the most powerful of Impurities together!

Tomohisa Taguchi (Persona 4 the Golden Animation, Persona 3 the Movie #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream, Persona 3 the Movie #4 Winter of Rebirth) directed the series at Studio Pierrot (Naruto Shippūden, Tokyo Ghoul, Yona of the Dawn). Shishō Igarashi (Unlimited Psychic Squad director) was assistant director, Naruhisa Arakawa (MAOYU, Outbreak Company, Kingdom) handled the series composition, Kikuko Sadakata (Corpse Princess, Muromi-san, Devils and Realist) designed the characters, and Itsuko Takeda (Level E, Kingdom) was the chief animation director. Hitomi Kaji performed the ending theme song Eyes."

Sukeno (Binbogami-ga) launched the "new-generation onmyō (ancient Japanese occultism) fantasy" in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine in November 2013. Viz Media is publishing the series in North America.
