Kouichiro Kawano (And Yet the Town Moves, High School Fleet episode animation director) is designing the characters. Married couple Kazuko Tadano and Hiromi Matsushita (Sailor Moon, Dancougar - Super Beast Machine God) are the chief animation directors, and Ryo Kawasaki (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Altair: A Record of Battles) is composing the music.

The anime's official website previously streamed a teaser video for the anime in March.
