The official website for Animax's original television anime The Girl in Twilight (Akanesasu Shōjo) announced on Sunday that it has canceled the anime's planned four-volume release on DVD. The staff had also originally planned to release the anime in four Blu-ray Disc volumes, but will now release the anime in one boxset release on April 17.

The anime premiered on October 1. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the anime, and HIDIVE is streaming the series as it airs. HIDIVE is listing the anime with 12 episodes.

Kōtarō Uchikoshi (Ever17, Punch Line, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward) is credited for the project's original scenario concept. Jin Tamamura (A Sister's All You Need) is directing the anime at Dandelion Animation Studio and Jūmonji. Yūichi Abe (Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial, live-action Prince of Tennis) is credited as series director.

Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai, DNA², Tiger & Bunny) is drawing the original character designs alongside Hiroyuki Asada (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, Cheer Boys!!), who is also credited as concept artist, while Hiroki Harada (Romeo × Juliet, [email protected], Sweetness & Lightning) is designing the characters for animation.

The anime's smartphone/PC (browser) tie-in game launched in Japan on October 15 for iOS and Android devices, as well as for PCs (through browsers via DMM Games). The game will end service on January 31. The game shares the anime's original scenario writer, original character designers, concept artist, main theme song writer, and music producer.
