Hakusensha describes the manga:
Kappei is a martial artist living on a small isolated and isolated island, among many young men training vigorously with their master to survive the apocalypse of July 1999 predicted by Nostradamus – which never happened. Master finally gave up in 2011, dissolved the martial arts camp, and sent the members back to today’s Japan. Without any knowledge of the modern world, Kappei arrives in Tokyo and begins a new life: as heroes without antagonists.
Wakasugi (Detroit Metal City, All Esper Dayo!) launched the original manga in Hakusensha‘s Young animal magazine in 2011 after completing its Detroit Metal City manga in the same magazine. The manga ended in 2014. Hakusensha published six volumes of books compiled for the manga.
