Shogakukan describes the manga's story:
It is the middle of the 18th century. Beginning with the English, the Western European countries have begun to cast their gaze across the sea in an age of great romance. In such an age lives a boy who hides great power within him. What destiny awaits him as he struggles and cuts through the raging waves? An ocean spectacle romance action story begins!
Viz Media published three volumes of Minagawa and Hiroshi Takashige's Spriggan manga as Striker in North America from 1998 to 1999. Viz also released all 22 volumes of Minagawa and Kyoichi Nanatsuki's Project ARMS manga in North America from 2003 to 2009.
