Vertical Comics is publishing Devils' Line in print in English, and Kodansha Advanced Media is releasing the manga digitally in North America. Vertical Comics 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 11th volume on March 23. Vertical Comics published the 10th volume on March 6.

The anime adaptation of Devils' Line will premiere in Japan on AT-X on April 7 at 23:30, and it will also air on Tokyo MX, BS11, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto. HIDIVE will stream the series starting on April 7, and will begin streaming an English dub within two weeks of the simulcast premiere.
