Kōhei Kureta (One Piece Film Z assistant director) and Yukio Kaizawa (Digimon Frontier, Jigoku Sensei Nube director) are the series directors, and Jin Tanaka (Go! Princess Precure, Anne-Happy) is handling the series composition. Yuuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Death Parade) is composing the music, and Marie Ino (Death Note, Heartcatch Precure! key animator) is designing the characters.
