Funimation describes the series:

When Miyako Arata starts his brand-new job as a civil servant, he's shocked to find out he's not serving the regular public—he's working with supernatural beings! Referred to as “Anothers”, Miyako and his team deals with the trouble they cause, unseen by the human eye. But while on his first assignment, Miyako surprises everyone with an unheard-of ability—he can understand the Anothers!

The anime premiered in Japan on April 7. Crunchyroll began streaming Midnight Occult Civil Servants on April 7 for users in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Latin America.

Tetsuya Watanabe (Rumbling Hearts, Strain: Strategic Armored Infantry, Schwarzes Marken) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Tatsuto Higuchi (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon, Schwarzes Marken, My-Otome) is in charge of series composition. Eriko Itō (Hamatora, Danchigai, Love and Lies) is designing the characters.

Funimation is streaming the second season of the Million Arthur television anime of Square Enix's Operation Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur (Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur) massively multi-player online role-playing game as it airs in Japan on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. EDT.

Funimation describes the anime:

The legendary sword “Excalibur” weighs and measures all. Anyone it deems worthy of gaining tremendous power does so, and inherits the name “Arthur”. However, Excalibur dubs generously. With an overabundance of “worthy” dignitaries, six Arthurs travel to England to defeat the corrupt leadership that plagues their country and the world.

The second anime season premiered in Japan on April 4.

The first anime season premiered on October 25, and aired for 10 episodes. The anime has 23 aired episodes, and the show's sixth home video release includes an unaired episode.
