Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Daemons of the Shadow Realm) launched the manga in Shinshokan's Unpoko magazine in 2006, and it moved to Shinshokan's Wings magazine in 2009 after Unpoko ceased publication. Arakawa continues to serialize the manga irregularly. Shinshokan published the manga's seventh compiled book volume in October 2021. JManga previously published the manga in English.
