The official website for P.A.

From the director of Drifters, and the creator behind Grimgar, Ashes and Illusions, comes a war-torn world on the brink of calamity. Able to summon fairies as alter-ego weapons, former soldiers become government dogs, mafia members, and even terrorists in search of purpose beyond the battlefield. Who will maintain the peace they all fought for nine years ago?

Kenichi Suzuki (Cells at Work!, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Drifters) is directing the anime, with Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash light novel author Ao Jūmonji writing and overseeing the scripts. Haruhisa Nakata drew the original designs for the characters and fairies, while Takako Shimizu (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Sōsei no Aquarion Love) designed the characters for animation.

Tsunetaka Ema is the director of photography, and Kōtarō Shishido and Motonari Ichikawa are directing the 3D CG. Kiyoshi Hirose is editing, and Jin Aketagawa is directing the sound with sound effects by Tsutomu Ueno. [K]NoW_NAME (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, Sakura Quest) is credited for music production, and is performing the opening theme song "KNOCK on the CORE" and ending theme song "Ash-like Snow."
