The anime will premiere on January 12 at 24:00 (effectively January 13 at 12:00 a.m.) on Tokyo MX. The anime will stream in Japan on Netflix, and Netflix will premiere the show before its premiere on Japanese television.

Yuichiro Hayashi (Garo the Animation, Garo: Divine Flame, Kakegurui) is directing the anime at MAPPA. Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish, Mob Psycho 100, Vinland Saga) is in charge of series composition. Tomohiro Kishi (91 Days, Garo -Vanishing Line-) is designing the characters. [K]NoW_NAME (Sakura Quest, Fairy Gone) are composing the music.

The science-fiction manga debuted in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine in 1999. When Monthly Ikki ended serialization in 2014, the manga moved to its replacement magazine Hibana, and then to Monthly Shonen Sunday when Hibana ceased publication in 2017. The manga ended in Monthly Shonen Sunday's October issue in September 2018. The manga's 23rd and final compiled book volume shipped last November.

Viz Media's description of the manga's first volume is as follows:

In a city so dismal it's known only as "the Hole," a clan of Sorcerers have been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious "experiments" in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they're hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they'll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of "cleaners" into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.

Viz Media began distributing the manga digitally when it launched SigIKKI, its online English version of Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki seinen manga magazine, in 2009. The North American manga distributor then began releasing the title in printed book form in 2010, and the 23rd volume shipped on September 17.
