Writer Moritaka and artist Keiji Adachi began publishing the Gurazeni baseball manga in 2010. The original series ended in 2014 with 17 volumes, but the author launched the Gurazeni: Tokyo Dome-hen manga sequel with that year. Tokyo Dome-hen ended in February 2018 and a new series titled Gurazeni : Pa League-hen (Pacific League) premiered in March 2018. Pa League-hen ended in the 13th episode, published in October last year.
The original manga inspired two television anime series, which premiered in April 2018 and October 2018.
