The first season was produced by Madhouse and released in 2015. The adaptation received critical acclaim for its animation and humor. A second season was later released in 2019 by JC Staff, but it received more mixed to negative reviews. While the story and humor were still praised, the animation suffered a sharp drop in quality.
Season 3 would apparently change JC Staff studios; however, it has not been announced who will be taking on the series. For now though, fans will have to wait for further updates.
