Juni Taisen is based on NisiOisin’s novel series of the same name. Naoto Hosoda (The Devil is a Part-Timer!, The Future Diary) is directing the project at Graphinica, with Chikashi Kadekaru (Hōkago Mania Club) providing character designs. Sadayuki Murai (Boogiepop Phantom, Knights of Sidonia) is in charge of series composition for the show.

Gō Shiina (Dimension W, Tales of Zestiria the X) is composing the show’s soundtrack.

Funimation describes the series as:

For one wish, they’ll risk it all. The time has come for the Twelve Tournament—held every twelve years. For twelve proud warriors, each baring a name from the Chinese Zodiac, they’ll prepare to fight in a bloody battle royal. The victor gets any one wish they desire, but they’ll have to do whatever it takes to earn it. Blood and tears will flow on this battlefield—who will be the lone survivor?
