Akira Amemiya (Inferno Cop, Ninja Slayer, earlier 2015 "Denkō Chōjin Gridman boy invent great hero" short) is directing this collaboration between the anime studio Trigger and Tsuburaya Productions — the creator of the Ultraman franchise and the original 1993-1994 live-action tokusatsu (special-effects) series Denkō Chōjin Gridman. In addition, Keiichi Hasegawa (Rage of Bahamut: Genesis, 009-1: The End of the Beginning, Zoids) is writing the scripts, and Tsuburaya Productions' Masayuki Gotou (Baton, recent Ultraman franchise installments) is designing the Gridman. Shinji Nishikawa (Godzilla series), Hiroshi Maruyama (Ultraman series), and Ichiro Itano (Ultraman Nexus CG motion director) are the kaijū (monster) designers. Masaru Sakamoto is the character designer. Pony Canyon is producing the music.
Shiro Sagisu (Shin Godzilla, Evangelion) is composing the show's music, Toshiki Kameyama (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Hidamari Sketch) is the sound director, and Eiko Morikawa is returning from the original Denkō Chōjin Gridman live-action show to handle the sound effects.
