The website also began streaming the second promotional video for the anime. The video previews MYTH&ROID's opening theme song "Panta Rhei."

The anime will debut on AT-X on July 10 at 10:00 p.m. before airing later that evening on Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, and Sun TV. The show will also air on TV Aichi and BS11.

The anime stars:

Daisuke Tsukushi (episode director on Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth - The Animation, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory, Girly Air Force) is making his series directorial debut with the anime, and Encourage Films is animating the series. Takayo Ikami (Penguindrum, Yuri Kuma Arashi, Beautiful Bones -Sakurako's Investigation-) is in charge of the series scripts. Shuji Maruyama (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's) is designing the characters. Yoshiaki Fujisawa (The Eccentric Family, Love Live! School idol project, A Place Further Than the Universe) is composing the music. Takahashi will perform the ending theme song as her character Rin.

The story centers on Taichi Nishimura and his friend Rin Azuma, who both get transported into a fantasy world. While in their previous world, Taichi is a normal person who just has higher than average reflexes, both he and Rin gain high levels of physical and magical ability, and begin their new life as magicians.
