Kazuma Kamachi is credited as the original creator, while Kiyotaka Himura and Arata Yamaji are credited for original character design.

Kadokawa published the manga's third compiled book volume on April 24, and will publish the fourth volume on October 24. Seven Seas will release the manga in English, and will publish the first volume on October 27.

Yen Press is releasing the original light novel series in English, and Funimation has released all of the anime adaptations in North America outside of the A Certain Scientific Railgun OVA.
