Aoki (under the pseudonym Hiroaki Igano) and Tsukiyama previously collaborated on the The Knight in the Area soccer manga, which launched in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006, and ended on March 29. Kodansha published the manga's 57th and final compiled book volume on May 27. The spinoff manga Area no Kishi Bangai-hen: Enokō Early Days about the high school days of Coach Iwaki debuted in 2007, and Kodansha's Manga Box app released the series. The original manga also inspired a four-panel gag comedy manga.
