The anime stars Reina Ueda as Miyo Saimori and Kaito Ishikawa as Kiyoki Kudo.
Takehiro Kubota (Gloomy the Naughty Grizzly) is directing the series at Kinema Citrus (Made in Abyss). Takao Abo (22/7, Macross Frontier) is in charge of storyboards and supervision.

Yuushi Koshida (Ghost in the Shell Arise) is the 3DCG director. Evan Call (Violet Evergarden) is composing the music.
Agitogi and Tsukioka launched the novel series in January 2019. Yen Press licensed the light novels, and it describes the story:
Born to a noble family, Miyo is raised by her abusive stepmother and married off to Kiyoka, a soldier so heartless his prior fiancées fled within three days into their engagement. With no home to return to, Miyo slowly starts to open her heart to her cold and pale husband-to-be, despite their rocky introduction... This might just be her chance at finding true love and happiness.
Rito Kohsaka's manga adaptation debuted on Square Enix's Gangan Online website in December 2018. Square Enix Manga & Books is releasing the manga physically and digitally in English.
A live-action film adaptation of the novels will open in Japan on March 17.
