Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Asura Cryin') is supervising the series scripts, and Kenichi Konishi (Bokurano, Tokyo Godfathers) is designing the characters.
Shizue Kaneko (Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Uchū Kaitakushi, Doraemon: Nobita to Midori no Kyojin Den) is serving as chief animation director with Emmy-nominated art director Shigemi Ikeda (Afro Samurai: Resurrection, Bokurano, several Gundam projects). Masafumi Mima (Macross Frontier, Paprika) is directing the sound.
The series will premiere on the Tokyo MX station in Japan on Saturday, April 7.
