Sentai Filmworks celebrated the announcement on Twitter:

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Kuronekotei—a cafe located in the imperial capital’s fifth ward. Girls who work there are autonomous mechanical dolls, also known as automata. They were originally created as weapons for the great war that ended only a few years ago. Now, they are now looking for new roles in a peaceful world.”
The anime is written by Kai and Tōya Okano with Akane Yano handling the character designs. Two manga adaptions are being released including ‘Prima Doll New Order’ and ‘Prima Doll: Welcome to Kuronekotei.’
