The anime premiered in Japan on January 12, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs. Funimation is streaming an English dub for the series.

Kenji Yasuda (Arata The Legend, Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth - The Animation) is directing the anime at Satelight. Shogo Yasukawa (Terraformars, Alderamin on the Sky) is handling series composition, Hidenori Inoue is designing the characters, and Kotaro Nakagawa (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Hayate the Combat Butler) is composing the music. Yoshikazu Iwanami (Fate/Zero, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) is the sound director.

Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets are performing the opening theme song "Stray." TRI4TH, a five-member male jazz band that formed in 2006, are performing the ending theme song "Dirty Bullet."

The story of the novels takes place in Fukuoka. At first glance, the city seems like a peaceful one, but under the surface, crime is running rampant. The city's Hakata ward is home to the professionals of the underworld: professional killers, detectives, informants, professional revenge seekers, those skilled in torture, and more. And according to urban legend, even a "killer of professional killers" exists in the city. When stories of the men in the underworld are told, a "professional killer murder" appears.
