Kazuya Aiura is directing the title at EMT Squared, with Maho Yoshikawa (Yona of the Dawn, Amnesia) providing character designs. Deko Akao (Anonymous Noise, Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?) is in charge of series composition.

The publisher describes the show as:

In a world where only nobles wield the sacred power of mana to wage war against the creatures of darkness, a curious absence of ability places young Merida in a precarious position. Under the guise of tutelage, Kufa, a ruthless assassin, is sent to assess Merida’s abilities and determine if she is the true-born heir of the prestigious Angel family. If she does not measure up to her family’s expectations, another, more ruthless plan will be set in motion…

Z/X Code Reunion
