"Long ago, war broke out between the regions of Kanto and Kansai, splitting the country in two. Kansai became a vassal state of Kanto and developed characteristic advancements. However, with the decline of the government and the police force, crime ran rampant. Those criminals are called Akudama.
This crime action story is set in a highly advanced, yet twisted society, and each Akudama has a different method of coping. The individual styles of each Akudama will collide as they finally assemble for one purpose."
- In December 2020, Rokurou Ogaki put up a poll on his Twitter asking what he should abbreviate the manga's name to. "Akudamanga" (アクダマンガ Akudamanga) won with 49,6% of the votes.
