However, due to his superhuman levels of training, he has inadvertently survived multiple executions, from attempts at beheading to burning at the stake. The executioner Sagiri Asaemon tells him that he has lingering attachment to life, and issues him a mission to win his acquittal: to find the elixir of immortality.

Kaku launched the manga on Shueisha‘s Shonen Jump+ website and app in January 2018, and ended the series in January 2021. The manga’s 13th and final volume shipped in April 2021.
