Kubikiri Cycle: Aoiro Savan to Zaregoto Zukai is the debut work of Nishio Ishin published by Kodansha Novels in 2002. The series received the 23rd Mephisto Prize.
It became a big topic as soon as it was published and the Zaregoto Series (which is originated from the same series) is especially popular among Nishio’s other works.
A pocket edition has been published by Kodansha Bunko in 2008, and in 2016 the series was also released in E-book form.
