The anime will premiere in January 2019 on Fuji TV's Noitamina block and will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime in Japan. In France, the show will stream exclusively on Wakanim.
Mamoru Kanbe (Elfen Lied, The Perfect Insider) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures' CloverWorks studio (Persona 5 The Animation). Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, The Perfect Insider) is writing the series composition, Kazuaki Shimada (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.) is designing the characters for animation, and Takahiro Obata is composing the music.
The Singapore event will take place from November 30 to December 2.
