The manga’s story centers on Zen Seisaki, a prosecutor with the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors’ Office. Along with his colleagues, he investigates the illegal acts of a pharmaceutical company to reveal a secret related to a newly developed drug. While investigating, he stumbles upon a conspiracy over an election to establish an autonomous “new zone” in western Tokyo.

Babylon is written by Mado Nozaki, with illustrations by Zain. It was first released in 2015 under Kodansha’s Kodansha Taiga label, with three volumes released so far. A manga adaptation drawn by Nobuhide Takishita was also serialized in Kodansha’s Comic Day website in February 2019.
