To date, the manga has over 30 million copies in circulation and has been released in English by Viz Media, although the company stopped publishing the series with the 19th volume and cancelled the release of the 20th volume in English.
The manga has also inspired a six-episode original video anime (OVA) that was released on home video by Geneon Entertainment (also known as Pioneer) in 1992-1993. Fans of the series have been eagerly awaiting the second season of the anime adaptation, and now they can look forward to its premiere on Netflix in 2023.
