Tough gangland retribution takes a disturbingly bright, shiny turn in this insanely guilty pleasure about 3 yakuzas who, as repayment for their failures, must undergo major surgery and become … a hot female idol trio! So what happens when they become the next big pop sensation!?
The manga launched in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine in March 2015, and ended on September 15. Kodansha published the manga's 11th compiled volume on June 6. The manga has more than 450,000 copies in print.
