Terajima launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006. He ended the first part of the manga in January 2015, and Kodansha published 47 volumes for the manga. Terajima then launched Ace of Diamond Act II in August 2015. The fourth and fifth manga volumes bundled anime DVDs in 2016.
The manga has also inspired a series of stage plays.
