The anime features the cute girls studying in a boarding school city called Ashram. Here, the girls (called Pentagrams) live peacefully while learning culture, etiquette, and magic.

The main PV features the opening theme song A Place That Leads to the Beginning (はじまりへと続く場所) by Hanauta (the female characters of the 5th dormitory). Meanwhile, the ending theme will be performed by cluppo, a solo project of musician Miku Kobato from Japanese rock band BAND-MAID.

The voice actors for the anime will be the same as those from the original game. The original mobile game Warau Ars Notoria was released for iOS and Android devices in Spring 2020 to celebrate Nitroplus' 20th anniversary.
