Qjo launched the manga in Biblos' Magazine Zero in 2000, and it later moved to Kadokawa Shoten's Beans Ace magazine. The manga moved to Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Asuka magazine after Beans Ace ceased publication in 2009. The series then moved to Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website in 2016, where it is currently serializing. Kadokawa published the manga's 16th compiled book volume on February 22.
Qjo also illustrated the Trinity Blood manga adaptation of Sunao Yoshida's Trinity Blood light novel series. Tokyopop released the first 12 volumes of the manga in print, and Viz Media released them digitally.
