Blue Giant is based on the manga by Shinichi Ishizuka, which ran from 2013 to 2016. It was later followed up by Blue Giant Supreme in 2016 and Blue Giant Explorer in 2020, with the latter still ongoing with five tankoubon volumes as of February 2022. All three titles are published by Shogakugan and were/are serialized in Big Comic.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the manga as:

The award-winning manga of one young man’s journey to become the greatest saxophone player in the world.

Dai lived a normal high school life in Sendai: a city of hot summer days and rainy nights. Between basketball, part time jobs, and an uncertain future, something was missing. And that thing was music. With his days in senior year running out, Dai swears a heartfelt vow: “I’m gonna be the best jazz player in the world.”

But what do you need to be the best? Talent? Effort? A lucky break? Or maybe just a deep, pure love for music, and too much stubbornness to know when to quit.

He still likes video games, but now focuses on writing anime-related news content and the occasional review for Anime Trending. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
