Kazuaki Shimada and Kana Ishida are credited with the character and sub-character designs respectively. Kyoji Asano was the head animation director, while the animation was supervised by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. The music was produced by [K]NoW_NAME, and the sound direction was handled by Shōji Hata. Official HiGE DANdism performed the movie’s theme song “Soulsoup”. This group also performed the initial opening theme song for the anime’s first season.
