The anime will premiere on BS Fuji and other channels in January, and Amazon Prime Video will "exclusively" offer the early streams of the anime. TATSUKI posted an an "episode 0.5" for the anime on September 30.
TATSUKI and Yaoyorozu, Kemono Friends' former anime director and studio, are producing the anime. TATSUKI's fellow irodori members Yoshihisa Isa and Yūko Shiromizu serve as the animation director and art director, respectively. Yoshitada Fukuhara, the producer of the Kemono Friends anime, is credited as the animation producer.
TATSUKI and irodori — which also includes Kemono Friends art director Yūko Shiromizu and Kemono Friends animation director Yoshihisa Isa — had teased a new television anime project with a flier at Comic Market in December.
TATSUKI reported last September that, per a notification from publishing and production company Kadokawa, he is no longer working on the Kemono Friends project. Soon after, the anime's official website announced that the studio Yaoyorozu would no longer be involved. Producer Yoshitada Fukuhara confirmed in December that Yaoyorozu will not return.
