Takashi Okazaki, the creator of the Afro Samurai manga, was the character designer for the film. The project also involved English-language screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia, the executive producers for the Afro Samurai series and Afro Samurai: Resurrection film.

Kamikaze Douga worked on the project, and Yūgo Kanno (Psycho-Pass, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Ajin) composed the music. The anime’s website stated the project was three years in the making.

Masato Hisa (Nobunagun, Area 51) launched a manga adaptation of the anime in Monthly Hero’s in June 2018, and ended it in September 2019. The manga won a Seiun Award in August 2020.
