Since 2018, Enterbrain has been serializing it with pictures by Tozai, and there are already 5 volumes out in the wild. Yen Press has the rights to publish these novels in the English language. Currently, the anime is adapting the third volume, and the plot summary reads as follows:
Deep within the Lawless City lies the Blood Queen, a Progenitor Vampire, slumbering in her coffin for many moons.

Soon enough, he finds the three rulers of the Lawless City-Juggernaut the Tyrant, Yukime the Spirit Fox, and Crimson the vampire-are all on his tail. To complicate things even further, the Shadow Garden descends on the scene as the hour of the Blood Queen’s awakening looms closer and closer…
