In addition to the opening animation, which was done by Shaft (Monogatari series, March Comes in Like a Lion), the mobile game features the work of Gekidan Inucurry (Doroinu), who handles the designs for the Witches, as well as aokiume, who served as the original character designer for the anime series and contributed over ten new designs for the game.
