The ending theme song "255,255,255" will be performed by Junya Enoki, Yuma Uchida, and Kaito Ishikawa in character as Shuta Aoi, Ran Akagi, and Koki Suido respectively. Ryosuke Shimomura from J-pop band the chef cooks me is composing the single, as well as writing the lyrics and producing it.
Naokatsu Tsuda (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) directs Tokyo Twenty Fourth Ward based on the scripts by Baio Shimokura (STEINS;GATE visual novel). The pairing of Shuji Sogabe and Kanako Nono under the name FiFS drew the original character designs with Takahiro Kishida (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind) adapting them for animation. Hideyuki Fukasawa (Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works 2014) is composing the music. The animation will be produced at CloverWorks.
Tokyo Twenty Fourth Ward premieres on January 5 with a one-hour special on TV Tokyo at 24:00 (effectively, 12 AM on January 6) and will move to 12:30 AM for the remainder of the episodes.
