Shōichirō Hiwatashi, the representative director of Kumarba Inc., is the television anime's director and producer, and is also credited for the original work. Creative House Pocket is producing the animation. Kōki Hashimoto (Bōken Tairiku Ania Kingdom, A Galaxy Next Door episode scripts) is writing and supervising the series scripts. Kotaro Sakamoto is credited as scenario coordinator. Chika Sekine is the creative director. Yuka Kawashima is credited for motion capture. Rei Yanagisawa is the assistant producer.

The Kumarba YouTube channel launched in 2019, and centers on the adventures of the five-year-old video-loving bear Kumarba, and his friend, the squirrel-themed tablet Tabris. Kumarba is joined by his friend Nekorun, and the Internet-dwelling virus Bagurin. The channel currently has 467,000 subscribers.

The anime will be an "action-comedy" that sees Kumarba and Tabris facing off against Bagurin, who is wreaking havoc on the online world.
