Sentai Filmworks licensed the television anime series for the summer 2017 streaming season. Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

At the end of the 19th century, London, the Kingdom of Albion has been split into East and West sides by a giant wall. Five girls attend Queen's Mayfaire, a conventional and prestigious school. Under the guise of regular high school girls, they act as spies under cover. Disguise, reconnaissance, infiltration, car chases... Each girl uses their own set of special skills to dart around the world of shadow.

Masaki Tachibana (Barakamon, .hack//Quantum) directed the series at Studio 3Hz and Actas. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) was in charge of the series composition and also wrote the scripts. Kouhaku Kuroboshi (Kino's Journey, Sky Girls) designed the original characters, and Yukie Akiya (Celestial Method, Code:Breaker) adapted the characters for animation and also served as a co-chief animation director for the series. Yuki Kajiura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) composed the music.

A six-film sequel project has been green-lit.
