Vertical Comics is publishing the manga in print in English, and Kodansha Advanced Media is releasing the manga digitally in North America. Vertical describes the series' story:

Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood...

Hanada launched the dark fantasy manga in Kodansha's Monthly Morning Two magazine in 2013, and Kodansha published the 10th compiled book volume on July 21. The 11th volume, which will ship on March 23, will bundle a drama CD with the anime's cast featuring a story from the day before the first episode of the anime. Vertical published the tenth volume on March 6.
