Shimotsuki launched the original manga in 2006, and Kadokawa published the manga's eighth and final volume in 2011.

Shimotsuki launched the Brave10 S sequel manga in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011, and ended the series in March 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's ninth volume (pictured at right) on March 26.

The original Brave10 manga inspired a television anime in 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. NIS America released a Blu-ray Disc box of Brave10 in 2013.
