The series was launched in May 2019, with expectations from Kishimoto that the manga would last ten volumes or more. Despite this, the manga ended in March 2020 with five volumes and 43 chapters.



* InfoDump: The first chapter is ''very'' exposition-heavy when it comes to giving technical terms, but doesn't do much to define the setting or narrative. Incidentally, Masashi Kishimoto knows that this is a turn off for many readers and warns other authors to avoid it. However, he trusted in his name recognition as the author of the massively successful Naruto manga to keep readers around.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: The Samurai and their Princesses' relationship is treated like this. It is mentioned that the Princess becomes a source of strength for the Samurai as they must protect her and become stronger ''for her''. But it's never shown if this relationship is merely platonic or romantic or if it can be either.
