The action sci-fi series features an original story by Danganronpa creator Kazutaka Kodaka, and was directed by Tomohiro Taguchi. Character designs were created by Danganronpa's Rui Komatzusaki. The series will now debut on October 8 after it was postponed last July due to the effects in production brought by the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The Akudama Drive Wiki describes the series as: Long ago, war broke out between Kanto and Kansai & the world was divided. At the end of the war, Kansai became a dependent state of Kanto. Under Kanto rule, Kansai's politics and police power declined and crimes became rampant. The criminals are called "Akudama".
