The show's Clover Kingdom vs. Spade Kingdom arc premiered on January 5.

The anime premiered in Japan in October 2017. The show was originally listed with 51 episodes, but it continued into a new season with episode 52 in October 2018, and continued on again into a new season in October 2019. The show went on hiatus starting on April 28 due to the effects of the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on the production, and resumed on July 7 with episode 133.

Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles, and Funimation is streaming the show's English dub. The anime debuted on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block in December 2017, and resumed on Toonami on February 13.

Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume, Yatterman Night, Muromi-san, Long Riders!) is directing the anime at Studio Pierrot. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Is the order a rabbit?, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Yatterman Night) is supervising the series scripts. Itsuko Takeda (Ristorante Paradiso, Level E, Blue Drop) is the character designer, and Kumiko Tokunaga (Kingdom) is the sub-character designer. Minako Seki (The Silver Guardian, Kingdom) is composing the music.
