The manga will be the first new serialization in the magazine in the new Reiwa era. A four-page "preview" of the manga debuted in the combined 22nd and 23rd issues on Saturday, and Viz Media published the preview. Viz Media will also publish the main manga digitally in English. The manga's first full chapter will have 72 pages.
