The series is based on the light novel series written by Yoshinobu Akita and illustrated by Yuuya Kusaka. It was published from May 1994 to September 2003 and also inspired several light novel spinoffs, sequels, and manga. A light novel sequel, Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: The New Wayward Journey, was published by TO Entertainment in September 2011 and has released 12 physical volumes so far.
