Netflix stated when it revealed the anime that it will be "the first ever original anime title to debut all episodes simultaneously in 190 countries around the world." Netflix originally gave this description of the story:
Directed by Kazuto Nakazawa, the 12-episode series is set in the future where scientists have tried to breed the “perfect human” in hopes of keeping peace in the universe. After nearly achieving their goal through three children, the scientists send their “new humans” for further training where they are kidnapped by an evil organization set on using their powers to implement their own concept of a new world order.
Nakazawa also directed the animated segment in Kill Bill Vol. 1, the Moondrive short in the Genius Party anthology, and Parasite Dolls. He designed the characters in Samurai Champloo, House of Five Leaves, Terror in Resonance, El Hazard, and DAYS.
