Crunchyroll began streaming the series with English subtitles on January 11, and it describes the story:
Shido is just an ordinary school boy, but, he's been recruited to help seal Spirits—the mystical creatures responsible for the spacequakes that threaten mankind. There's just one catch: the only way to seal a Spirit is to make her fall in love with him. Now that he's saved the world once or twice, more trouble is headed his way, and there's only so much one boy can handle.
Keitaro Motonaga is returning to direct the anime at J.C. Staff (AIC PLUS+ and Production IMS produced the previous two series respectively). Hideki Shirane is returning to handle the series composition, and Koji Watanabe (key animator for first two seasons) is designing the characters. Four-member musical unit sweet ARMS will perform the opening theme song "I Swear," and Eri Yamazaki will perform the ending theme song "Last Promise."
The anime will have 12 episodes.
