Yoshimasa Hiraike is directing the anime at Satelight studio. The anime is based on that of Doufu Mayoi Dark Summoner series of light novels. Overlap has been serializing it with Kurogin’s artwork since 2016, and it currently has 15 volumes available. A manga adaptation of Gin Ammo has also been published by the same publisher since 2018, and so far it has 11 volumes in circulation. J-Novel Club has licensed the light novel series in English and describes the plot as follows:

Waking up in a strange new place with no memories of his past life, Kelvin learns that he traded those same memories in exchange for powerful new abilities during his recent transmigration. Head into a whole new world as a summoner – with his first disciple being the very goddess who brought him! — Kelvin begins his new life as an adventurer, and it’s not long before he discovers his hidden temperament as a combat junkie. From the Dark Knight of the Ancient Castle of Evil Spirits to the Demon of the Sage’s Hidden Cave, he revels in combat against one fearsome foe after another. Join this OP adventurer in an exhilarating and epic saga as he and his allies fight their way through the annals of history!
