In the original Azur Lane game for iOS and Android devices, players collect early 20th century warships from various countries and use fleets of six ships to battle enemies. Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi developed the game, and bilibili released it in China in May 2017. Shanghai Yostar released the game in Japan in September 2017. Yostar released an English version of the game in May 2019.

The franchise inspired a television anime in October 2019. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles and an English dub. Episodes 11 and 12 of the anime aired in March 2020.

Azur Lane: Slow Ahead!, the short television anime of Hori's Azur Lane Bisoku Zenshin! four-panel manga, premiered this past January, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

The 12-episode SSSS.Gridman anime premiered in October 2018. The anime was a 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.

The SSSS.Dynazenon anime premiered on April 2. The anime is listed as being part of the "Gridman Universe," and the anime ended with a teaser card for the "Next Gridman Universe" and the words "Gridman x Dynazemon."
