Mardock Anonymous is set two years after the events of Mardock Scramble. Ubukata also previously wrote a prequel series titled Mardock Velocity in 2006. Katsuya Terada, who drew illustrations for the previous novels, is returning to work on Mardock Anonymous.

Mardock Scramble is the winner of the 24th Nihon SF Taisho, an award for writers of science fiction comparable to the American Nebula Awards. It was adapted into an anime movie trilogy in 2010, 2011, and 2012. The combined novel series has a reported circulation of 700,000 copies.

As Balot continues her pursuit for knowledge, Oeufcoque is once again resolving incidents with his new partner Rock and others. One day, Easter's Office receives a protection request from Kenneth C. O., the childhood friend of lawyer Sam Rosewood who is a whistleblower for a certain corporation. Oeufcoque and Rock's investigation will lead them to a new force in the city, the Quintet.
