Back in 2011, Yū Sasuga and Tachibana collaborated to create the renowned Terraformars manga. Unfortunately, the manga went on an indefinite hiatus in December 2018 due to Sasuga’s health issues. Shueisha released the manga’s 22nd volume in November 2018, accompanied by an anime DVD. North American fans can enjoy the series courtesy of Viz Media, which released the 22nd volume in December 2019 and the 21st volume in July 2019, featuring an anime DVD depicting the Earth arc.

The Annex 1 arc of the manga was adapted into a 13-episode TV anime series that premiered in September 2014, followed by the Terraformars Revenge sequel in April 2016. Fans across the globe could stream both series via Crunchyroll. Additionally, the manga’s Bugs 2 arc received a two-episode OVA series in 2014, which was bundled with the manga’s 10th and 11th volumes.
