Kodansha Comics releases the god-like manga series in English via digital storefronts, with 4 volumes released as of December 2019. The first chapter of the first volume can be read for free on their website and they describe the series as such:
In Heaven’s Animal Design Department, designers create a variety of new animals daily while contending with the unreasonable requests of their client: God. Funny, interesting, and full of useful information, this series answers questions such as, “Why can’t unicorns exist?”, “What makes an animal taste delicious?”, “What’s the most powerful creature in the ocean?”, and, “Bird versus snake: who would win?” You won’t believe it’s a manga series when you read up on the featured animals in the included encyclopedia entries. Heaven’s Design Team will make your next trip to the zoo or aquarium 100 times more fun!
Heaven's Design Team is directed by Soichi Masui at Asahi Production and will premiere in January 2021 on TOKYO MX, MBS, TV Aichi, AT-X, and BS Fuji, alongside a first episode screening in some libraries across Japan.
