After ending Fire Punch in Shnen Jump+ in January of that year, Fujimoto launched the horror action manga in Weekly Shnen Jump in December 2018. The manga finished its first part in December 2020 and began part 2 with chapter 98 on 12 July. Shueisha is scheduled to ship the 12th volume on October 4.
VIZ Media simultaneously released the first three chapters in English with a Japanese release as part of their Jump Start initiative, and later serialized it in their digital weekly Shnen Jump magazine. The company now publishes the manga on its Shnen Jump platform and shipped the 11th volume on March 4. Shueisha’s Manga Plus service also began publishing the manga in English last January.
