This CGI anime version of Natsuki Takaya’s monumental manga was produced by Studio Deen in 26 episodes in 2001. As Takaya-sama’s manga continued to run for five more years, producing surprise after surprise, the anime was brought to an abrupt ending shortly after Kyo’s first transformation into his monstrous form, but it was otherwise quite faithful to the original in both story and art.

The director was Akitaro Daichi, whose experience included camera work for Grave of the Fireflies and storyboards for series including Rurouni Kenshin, Saber Marionette J, and Vampire Princess Miyu. His most notable credentials were overall direction of Jubei-chan and Nurse Angel Ririka SOS.

Character designer and chief animation director was Akemi Hayashi, also a veteran of Rurouni Kenshin and Nurse Angel Ririka (and also chief animator of the Revolutionary Girl Utena Movie). She has recently gained much more visibility as character designer and chief animation director of the recent hit Banana Fish (2018).
