The manga centers on Sakura, a warrior during Japan's Warring States period who was cut down in battle alongside the famous "Demonic Six Swords" samurai whom he admired. Bearing a strong lingering regret even in death, Sakura awakens to find himself in the modern day, as a member of the idol group "SSS7" about to make their debut.
naked ape launched the manga in Monthly Princess in April 2019. Akita Shoten published the manga's first compiled book volume last December.
The manga creator duo consists of Otoh Saki and Tomomi Nakamura. The pair ended their Tsutsujimori: Ihinseiri Shimatsu-roku manga in the final issue of Kodansha's ARIA magazine in March 2018, and also launched the crime suspense manga Suicide Line on the Comic Tatan website in January 2019. Suicide Line ended on June 12.
