Satohiko Sano (Heybot!, Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun, Talentless Nana) is designing the characters. Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!) is composing the music, with King Record as the music producer. Masafumi Mima is the audio director.
Megumi Hayashibara is once again performing the anime's opening song "Soul salvation" and ending theme song "#Boku no Yubisaki" (My Fingertip). (She performed two opening songs and two ending songs for the 2001 anime.)
