NisiOisin (Monogatari Series, Medaka Box) and Nakamura (Saint Young Men, Arakawa Under the Bridge) published the original novel in May 2015. Graphinica adapted the series into an anime, and Crunchyroll streamed the "first 12-episode season" as it aired in Japan.

Viz Media released the original novel, and describes the story:

Twelve warriors enter a death match, but only one can survive to win the ultimate prize.

Rampage. Weep. Kill. Every 12 years, the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac take the form of warriors and engage in the ultimate battle royal. They face one another in battles to the death, using all the powers of their star signs, and the sole survivor is granted the ultimate prize—a wish. Any wish.

A manga adaptation by Akira Akatsuki (Medaka Box, Luger Code 1951) launched on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app and website on September 23. Viz Media is publishing the manga for free on its website.

A sequel novel titled Jūni Taisen Tai Jūni Taisen (Zodiac War Versus Zodiac War) shipped in Japan on December 12.
