The story takes place in the sparkling era year 3015, where the great nations Donatia and Kōran divide the world in a cold war as they fight for supremacy. In the middle of this standoff is island country Nil Kamui, which has lost its independence.

The main characters and cast members include:

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX TV, KBS Kyoto, BS11, and Sun TV on July 2.

The project is based on Red Dragon, the "role-playing fiction" story born from the "table talk role-playing game" sessions by five prominent anime, game, and art creators. The five Red Dragon participants were Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero), Kinoko Nasu (Kara no Kyōkai - the Garden of sinners, Fate/stay night, Lunar Legend Tsukihime), Izuki Kōgyoku (Mimizuku to Yoru no Ō, Mama, Garden Lost), Simadoriru (illustrator), and Ryohgo Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!!). Each participant created a character to guide through six nights of tabletop role-playing game sessions devised by "fiction master" Makoto Sanda (Rental Magica, Record of Lodoss War).

The website Sai-zen-sen serialized the compiled transcripts of the Red Dragon role-playing sessions.

Also as part of the project, there is a board game titled Chaos Dragon: Haō Shunjū. The "story-telling game's" plot revolves around seven heroes (controlled by the players) who fight in an endless war. The smartphone game Chaos Dragon: Konton Senso (Chaos Dragon: Chaos War) is scheduled to begin service this summer for iOS and Android devices. Scenario-writers for the game include Carlo Zen, Yoichiro Koizumi, Ukyo Kodachi from Team Barrel Roll, Makoto Sanda, Ryohgo Narita, Jin Haganeya (Guilty Crown episode scripts), and Shunsaku Yano, among others. Participating illustrators include Cheese Gouda (Gundam Reconguista in G designs), Shimadoriru, sime, Take, Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King), Peach-Pit (Shugo Chara!), and minoa from nitroplus. Sakimoto is composing the game's music.

Masato Matsune (Fate/Prototype CG supervisor, Meganebu! opening storyboarder and animation director) is directing the television anime at SILVERLINK./CONNECT. Team Barrel Roll's Ukyō Kodachi (Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road, Macross Frontier novels) is in charge of the series scripts with assistance by Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, EUREKA SEVEN AO).

Inoue and Saitō will appear at an advance screening of the first three episodes and a talk show in Tokyo on June 20.
