The anime will air on 30 stations and channels (including Fuji TV and Tokyo MX), covering most of Japan this year. Aniplex noted that so far, its various series have aired on a maximum of 21 stations.
Aniplex announced the anime’s sequel in February.
Koyoharu Gotouge launched the manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2016. The manga ended in May 2020. Shueisha published the manga’s 23rd and final compiled book volume in December 2020. Viz Media is publishing the manga in English.
