The official website of the anime has described the upcoming series:
In the distant future, humans have been pushed to the verge of extinction by the invasion of mysterious life-forms called the Gadoll, and were now forced to live inside the moving fortress Deca-dence as they desperately kept up resistance. Natsume, a girl who grew up with a dream of becoming a fighter, is assigned to work under the hard-nosed but apathetic armor-repairman Kaburagi, and finds herself spending her days swamped with endless routines of cleaning work. But one day, Natsume gets herself caught up in a battle with the Gadoll while on work, and what she witnesses is the sight of Kaburagi taking down one Gadoll soldier after another.
Popular anisong singer Konomi Suzuki will perform the opening theme song “Theater of Life”, while the ending theme song “Kioku no Hakobune” (Ark of Memories) will be performed by Kashitaro Ito.
