Kodansha Comics began releasing the series digitally in December 2017, and released the third volume digitally in March 2018. The company describes the series:

The draking vessel Quin Zaza soars through the skies, hunting dragons that hide in the clouds. A single big catch means full coffers and all the meat they can eat, while failure means an empty wallet and an even emptier stomach. Join us as we log the crew's grand adventures, chasing dreams of the sky, dragons, and gourmet cooking!

Kodansha Comics announced on Wednesday that it will begin releasing the manga in print this holiday season.

Kuwabara launched the manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in June 2016, and Kodansha published the manga's sixth compiled volume will ship on May 7.

A serialized novel in the franchise debuted in the Da Vinci magazine on May 6. The novel focuses on Vanabelle and other original female characters. Kuwabara is drawing illustrations for the novel.
