The anime will air on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, an BS-NTV. Funimation will stream the series as it airs.

Hiroaki Akagi (Teasing Master Takagi-san, Mashiro no Oto) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff, and Yukie Sugawara (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic, The Idolm@ster SideM, Overlord) is supervising the series scripts. Sōta Suwa is designing the characters, and Masato Kōda (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) is composing the music at Nippon Columbia.

Yen Press is releasing the novels and their manga adaptation in English, and it describes the story:

From the author of KONOSUBA comes a new light novel series! It's tough being on the front lines for an evil organization, and nobody knows this better than No. 6, a Combatant for the Kisaragi Secret Society. Dispatched to a distant alien world on a reconnaissance mission, he's got a new android partner, but how are you supposed to plan an interstellar invasion--of a fantasy world?!

Kadokawa is publishing the novels featuring Kakao Lanthanum's art in Japan. Masaaki Kiasa launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in March 2018.
