Junichi Yamamoto (Armor Shop for Ladies & Gentlemen, More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers, Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke's Mansion) is directing the anime at Typhoon Graphics. Yū Murai (Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke's Mansion scripts for episodes 3, 5, 7, 10-11) is in charge of the series scripts. Masaki Satō (Slam Dunk, Ultimate Muscle, Record of Ragnarok) is designing the characters. Yuki Kurihara (Dropkick on My Devil!) is composing the music.

Takayama began serializing the manga in Ichijinsha's Zero-Sum Ward magazine in 2008. Afer the magazine ceased publication in 2015, the manga has since continued on the Zero-Sum Online service as Takayama's longest-running serialization. Ichijinsha has published 16 volumes so far with over 1.3 million copies in circulation (including digital copies).

Takayama's Amatsuki manga also inspired a television anime in 2008.
