DN:TAS was a group project by 1KidsEntertainment, Salguy, xJerry64x, WatanukiProductions and xfragileheart. Even though it is a group project, it was not given a group name and is uploaded to 1KidsEntertainment's YouTube account.

The series began to be updated less frequently over time, with a year long gap between episodes 20 and 21, as 1KidsEntertainment and xJerry64x began to focus more on Pokemon The 'Bridged Series. DN:TAS was confirmed to be cancelled in the comments section of episode 20 of Pokemon 'Bridged (released August 26, 2014), with 1Kids citing lack of inspiration as one of the main reasons, as well as being relatively less enjoyable to write for, and having a smaller audience than Pokemon 'Bridged.

The first opening came from the ending sequence of the first season of the show, while the audio was a compiled mix of pieces from the full version of Death Note's season 1 opening, "The WORLD" by Nightmare. LittleKuriboh helped 1Kids develop this opening, which was his third or fourth attempt at a short, simple and fun opening.

The second opening was made by Ezekieru, using the song "Darker Side of Me" by The Veer Union. Ezekieru has been known for his editing work on various abridged series.
