It was first serialized on May 22, 2005 in the Japanese seinen manga magazine Comic High!
, published by Futabasha. At one time, an English language version of the manga was licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment for distribution in North America under the title Nymphet

An anime adaptation of the series aired on Japanese television between October 12, 2007 and December 28, 2007.
