The cast of the net anime are reprising their roles for the television anime. Yuko Sanpei (Boruto's titular character) plays the title character, a detective whose face looks like a butt.

The anime project's trailer debuted in May, followed by an “Auto Rickshaw Chase in Port Town” video in August, and "A Wind-Breaking Victory Dance" music video in December. All of the videos feature English, traditional Chinese, and Korean subtitles.

The web anime is streaming on Toei Animation's YouTube channel and the YouTube KIDS app.
