In the midst of the Barsburg Empire, which is divided into seven different districts, each with its own cities, rulers, and culture, the series had potential. Written by Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara, the series debuted in 2009 and only lasted 1 searson. Despite being chosen as the winner of the Zero-Sum Comics Grand-Prix, the series didn't pick up for audiences and was then canceled.
