Hiroshi Kobayashi, an episode director for Tiger & Bunny and Kill la Kill, is taking his first lead directorial role for this show, the name of which is taken from the words “kizuna” (connection) and “naïve”. Mari Okada, who wrote for Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, is on the team as scriptwriter, and manga artist Shiro Miwa, whose latest work DOGS/BULLETS&CARNAGE has been serialised in Shueisha’s Ultra Jump, provides original character designs. Mai Yoneyma, an assistant chief animation director on Kill la Kill, takes those character designs and adapts them for animation, and Haikyu!!’s Yuki Hayashi is composing the music to complement the art.
