His encounter gave him powers and led him to choose a path that seemed to be perfect—to become someone who hunts and fights the Nemesis.

Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Persona 4 The Animation, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) directed the first series at Lerche, while Daisei Fukuoka (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc, Yuki Yuna is A Hero Season 2) was credited as series director. Makoto Uezu (Humanity Has Declined, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Scum's Wish) was in charge of the series scripts. Nozomi Kawano designed the characters, and Masato Kōda (KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!, Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova) composed the music.

Update: While the Japanese text at the end of the first anime's finale describes the new anime as the "second series," the English and French translations in Crunchyroll's streaming describes it as "season 2." Thanks, Sekaro
