During the Assault Lily Exchange Meeting: Hajimemashite event on Sunday, it was announced that the multimedia project is getting a TV anime produced by Shaft

, the series will be directed by Shouji Saeki
(Houkago no Pleiades
, Medaka Box

) will design characters for animation.
In the near future, humanity faces imminent destruction from mysterious creatures known as "Huge." The world wages war against the Huge, and develops the anti-weapon "CHARM" (Counter Huge Arms) by combining science and magic. CHARM works more effectively when used by teenage girls, and those who use the weapons are revered as "Lilies." The Lilies are trained at military academies called "Gardens," which also serve as bases to protect and advise people. This is a story about girls who aim to become Lilies so they can protect Earth.
As part of the project, a stage play by Bushiroad will feature actresses who are also voicing the characters. Assault Lily: League of Guardian
will take place at Tokyo's Shinjuku Face venue from January 9-15.
