Nakahara is in charge of the original character designs. Akiko Takamichi is the character designer for the animal forms. Mitsutaka Hirota (series composition for Sweetness & Lightning, The Prince of Tennis II) is writing the scenario, and Taro Masuda (BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense.) is composing the background music.

In the story of the franchise, a soothing and calming "utopia" exists for those who are worn out, a place called "Animal Theratopia." The animals inhabiting "Animal Theratopia" turn into their human forms at night.
