The staff of the Carole & Tuesday anime announced on Wednesday that the anime will have new opening and ending theme songs starting with the 13th episode on July 13.

Nai Br.XX and Celeina Ann, the singing voices for Carole and Tuesday, respectively, will perform the opening theme song "Polly Jean." Keigo Oyamada (aka Cornelius) is writing the song. Alisa, the singing voice for Angela, is performing the new ending theme song "Not Afraid." Lido is writing the song.

The anime premiered on Fuji TV's +Ultra programming block on April 10. The show also premiered on Netflix that same week in Japan only, with new episodes streaming on Thursdays on Netflix. Netflix has the exclusive worldwide streaming rights to the series, but the anime's website has not announced when the show will start streaming outside of Japan. The series marks the 20th anniversary of BONES and the 10th anniversary of Flying Dog.

The Anime Expo event will screen the show's first episode on July 6.

Fuji Creative's website is listing the anime with a total of 24 episodes. The anime's staff had previously revealed that the anime would run for two cours (two quarters of a year).

Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance) is the show's supervising director, Motonobu Hori is directing the anime, and Tsunenori Saito (Blast of Tempest, Sword of the Stranger) is designing the characters for animation. Canadian artist Mocky is composing the background music. The staff also includes Eisaku Kubonouchi (Chocolat, "Hungry Days" commercials) as original character designer, Aya Watanabe (Carnation, Josee, the Tiger and the Fish) as scriptwriter, and Flying Dog as in charge of music production. The anime is collaborating with synthesizer and keyboard brand Nord and guitar maker Gibson.
