GoHands and Frontier Works are credited with the original work, and GoHands is animating the series. Shingo Suzuki (K, K: Return of Kings, W'z) is directing the anime and designing the characters. Tamazo Yanagi (Hand Shakers, W'z) is writing the scripts, and Conisch (Hetalia The Beautiful World, Linebarrels of Iron) and GOON TRAX (Hand Shakers, W'z) are composing the music.

The franchise's story is set in the fictional "Akatsuki special ward" of Tokyo, formed as a "lawless" independent state after the Akatsuki rebellion overthrew the ward's corporate masters. Maintaining order over the ward are three organizations — Helios, Artemis, and the Public Safety Bureau — who all employ agents known as "Scard." These agents are marked with Divine Tattoos that grant them the power to turn away any bullet or blade, making them virtually invulnerable.

Yui Kuroe, who previously drew four manga for GoHands' K franchise, is launching a manga titled Project Scard ~Kemono-tachi no Seigi~ (The Justice of Beasts) in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge on September 17.

The franchise also includes drama CDs, character songs, and voice actor livestream programs.
