Viz Media licensed the manga and will begin releasing it this fall. The company describes the story:

With no memory of his previous life—or who replaced his head with a giant gun—Juzo Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver.

Karasuma launched the manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in August 2014 after first publishing the story as a one-shot manga. Shueisha released the eighth compiled book volume on March 19.

Karusuma has also drawn manga adaptations of Reideen and Eiichi Ikegami's Shangri-La novel.
