The original web manga series began publication in early 2009 by an author who uses the pseudonym One. After becoming a viral sensation in June of 2012, a digital remake of the series was released by Shueisha’s Young Jump Web Comics which was illustrated by Yusuke Murata. An anime adaptation series soon followed in 2015 that was produced by Madhouse. The anime was released in Japan between October and December of that year. The dubbed version was later released in the US during the summer of 2016.
