Kento Shimoyama (Servant × Service, Bleach, Armed Girl's Machiavellism) is handling the series composition, Komagoma is designing the characters, and Shūji Katayama (Overlord, Popin Q, Saga of Tanya the Evil) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.

The first season of the Kaijū Girls ~Ultra Kaijū Gijinka Keikaku~ anime premiered via streaming in September 2016, and the second season premiered on January 9. Crunchyroll streamed both series worldwide outside of Asia.
The anime is part of Tsuburaya Productions' Ultra Kaijū Gijinka Keikaku project, which transforms kaijū (monsters) from the Ultraman live-action special-effects series into cute, female anthropomorphized monsters. The project has four distinct versions. The "POP version" features character designs by POP, and has picture books and drama CDs, as well as manga. The "Kadokawa version" includes the Ultra Kaijū Gijinka Keikaku Galaxy Days four-panel manga by Bakutendo, and the Kaijū Girls ~Ultra Kaijū Gijinka Keikaku~ anime shorts. The project also includes figures by Plex, and a "Kodansha version," which includes the Ultra Journey - Twin Tail Shōjo to Twin Tail na Boku manga.
Seven Seas Entertainment released the first volume of Shun Kazakami and POP's Ultra Kaiju Anthropomorphic Project (Ultra Kaijū Gijinka Keikaku: feat. POP Comic code) manga on February 20.
