Shokugeki no Soma, The Executioner and Her Way of Life) is in charge of the series scripts. Hideki Furukawa (Strike The Blood III, IV, FINAL, Battle Girl High School, Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) is designing the characters.

Viz Media and Shueisha are both publishing the manga in English digitally, and Seven Seas is releasing the compiled book volumes digitally and physically in English. Seven Seas released the first uncut volume on November 1. Seven Seas describes the story:
Teenager Kazamaki Matsuri has long been part of an elite force of ninja exorcists, tasked with fighting malicious ayakashi spirits who threaten Japan–especially those after his childhood friend, the spirit medium Kanade Suzu. As he fiercely protects her, and his relationship with her blooms from friendship into something more, a powerful cat ayakashi vows to get between the lovebirds: by casting a forbidden spell that turns Matsuri into a woman! With no apparent way to undo the spell, Matsuri must continue battling ayakashi–and go back to school–in this new feminine body until he can find a way to turn back.
Yabuki launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in June 2020. Shueisha published the manga's 11th compiled book volume on November 4.
Yabuki (To Love-Ru -Trouble-, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, Black Cat, Mayoi Neko Overrun!) most recently launched the manga adaptation of the original anime DARLING in the FRANXX on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website and app in January 2018, and ended the manga in January 2020. The manga has eight volumes.
