The company plans to distribute the series on multiple platforms such as Amazon's Kindle, Play Books, Rakuten Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and BookWalker.

The first 10 volumes of the series are now available for purchase on Amazon, and will go on sale on other platforms soon after. Two new volumes will be released every following month until the series is complete. The company plans to license more series for eBook publication in the future.
The release of the eBooks coincides with the start of Season 2 of Kengan Ashura on Netflix.
