Mikoto Yamaguchi conceptualized the manga, while Yuki Sato writes and illustrates it. It runs in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since December 2013. It went on hiatus in December 2019, returned for a chapter in February 2020, and went on hiatus again. The manga inspired two live-action films and a live-action series, all of which aired in 2017.
