The anime will premiere on April 4 on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, an BS-NTV. Funimation will stream the series as it airs.

Miku Itō is performing the opening theme song "No.6," and voice actresses Miyu Tomita, Sayaka Kikuchi, Natsumi Murakami, and Minami Takahashi are performing the ending the song "Home Sweet Home" as their respective characters.

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 [email protected] 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.
