But other countries and their agents are already moving to secure the Tesla Crystal, and Botan and Kuruma will have to use all their wit to outsmart them.
The manga launched in Kodansha‘s Weekly Shōnen Magazine on January 6. The manga transferred to Kodansha‘s Magazine Pocket app on August 4. Nishida and Kubo are credited with the original work, while Sannomiya is drawing the art. Kodansha published the manga’s second compiled book volume on June 17.
