The episodes of the Tegami Bachi anime are an adaptation of the manga series by creator Hiroyuki Asada, currently serialized on the Japanese monthly Jump SQ. magazine. The story is about a boy named Lag Seeing, who is a "Letter Bee", a delivery boy at the "Bee Hive" which fulfills everyone's delivery requests. Lag's "Dingo", or personal bodyguard, keeps him out of danger from the Gaichuu, giant insects that roam the darkness and attacks anyone near them. The series explores Lag's adventures as he helps deliver packages for the inhabitants of AmberGround. The animation will be handled by Studio Pierrot, while the cast that voiced some of the characters featured in the Tegami Bachi special Tegami Bachi: Hikari to Ao no Gensō Yawa (テガミバチ 〜光と青の幻想夜話〜, Letter Bee: Light and Blue Night Fantasy) will return for the regular anime.
