Inoue (Kamen Rider 555, Kamen Rider Agito, Chōjin Sentai Jetman, Chaos;HEAd series composition, screenplay) wrote the manga's story, while Kine drew the manga from original character designs by Amemiya (Garo creator/director, Zeiram character design).
The Sword Gai Evolve sequel series features the same creative staff, and launched in Monthly Hero's in November 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on December 29.
The original manga inspired a net anime adaptation on Netflix. The first 12 episodes debuted worldwide on Netflix on March 23. A sequel anime also with 12 episodes premiered worldwide on Netflix on July 30.
The story of the original manga revolves around Gai, who was born beside a woman who met her death in a forest. He was adopted by the swordsmith Amon. A few years later, Gai becomes Amon's apprentice, and during the forging of a sword, he loses his right arm. To help him, Amon crushes the demon sword Shiryū (lit. Death Dragon) to form it into Gai's replacement right arm. Gai then is able to fuse with the weapon on his arm, and fights against his enemies.
