Piyo and Roots launched the original Teekyū manga in Comic Earth Star in early 2012, and Taibundo published the ninth compiled volume in March. The first anime season was announced on the manga's first book volume. Earth Star Entertainment claimed that it was the fastest television anime adaptation ever. The fourth season of the television anime adaptation is currently airing, and a fifth season (key visual pictured below) has been green-lit.
Crunchyroll has streamed all four television anime series as they have aired thus far.
