Yamakawa and Asaki launched the manga in Weekly Young Magazine in May 2017. The manga's 22nd volume shipped on September 6. The manga entered a hiatus after it ended its second part in October 2021, and resumed with its third and final part in June 2022. The final arc picks the story back up seven years after the second part.

Kodansha USA Publishing licensed the manga, and started publishing it digitally on February 28.

The manga centers on a salaryman who has a reliable wife and a daughter in university who can sometimes act a bit rebellious, but has a happy life in his own way. Until one day he finds out his daughter has been beaten, and thus begins his journey into a dangerous world to protect his family.

The manga's anime adaptation debuted on April 2 on Tokyo MX and BS-NTV. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and started streaming an English dub on April 16.
