The property has two manga series out there and Seven Seas has picked up the rights to the main one by Kashiwa Miyako, which began in the spring of 2013 and has two volumes released to date as it’s been serialized in Shonen Ace. Seven Seas intends to bring the first volume out in February 2016, which if the anime gets domestic licensing, will be closer to the time that that may be coming out as well.
