The story takes place in the early 20th century, when the scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic in the form of Machinart - magical circuits that can be put into objects to bring them to life.
Akabane Raishin, a student from Japan, is now attending the Walpurgis Royal Academy in England to study the Machinart. He is accompanied by Yaya, his Automaton - a living machine-doll powered by magical circuits who is skilled in hand-to-hand combat and together with her, he aims to get the title of "Maou" - a title given to the greatest puppeteer, by winning the combat tournament for Automatons in this Academy.

Lately I've been consuming and re-consuming a load of content revolving around the concept of robot girls - Koukaku no Pandora, Angelic Layer, Hand Maid May, Ghost in the Shell, Chobits and more - much of this has influenced the direction I'm taking Smart Doll in and look forward to checking out this anime title.
Here is the key visual for the anime.
