The production committee stated that the state of emergency in Japan had a huge effect on their production schedule, and so they had to delay the new season.

The production committee while apologising for the delay also made a promise to the fans to expect a more enjoyable season when the long awaited season 2 finally begins.

The first season of the TV anime aired from October 2018 to March 2019. The light novel written by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz vah was acquired by Micro Magazine in 2014. The light novel has received a manga adaptation which has also led to other spinoff manga.
