The fourth season premiered in Japan in October 2019, and aired for 25 episodes. A two-episode original video anime for the franchise streamed in Japan in August 2020, and Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the episodes.

The show's fifth season premiered in Japan in March 2021, and aired for 25 episodes.

A new two-episode original video anime screened in Japan on June 16-19. Crunchyroll began streaming the episodes on August 1.
