Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, live-action Black Butler) is directing this adaptation of the "sweeping visual fantasy" at the anime studio MAPPA. Naoyuki Onda (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King, The Animatrix's Detective Story) is serving as character designer and chief animation director, and Yoshihiro Ike (Tiger & Bunny, Karas) is scoring the music.
