Written and illustrated by Yukiru Sugisaki, D.N.Angel premiered in Japan in the November 1997 issue of the Kadokawa Shoten magazine Monthly Asuka. New chapters were serialized monthly until Sugisaki put the series on an extended hiatus after the August 2005 issue. The series eventually returned to serialization, starting in the April 2008 issue of Monthly Asuka, where it ran until another pause starting in 2011. It came back in the magazine in February 2018 until its finale on January 2021. The individual chapters are collected and published in tankōbon volumes by Kadokawa Shoten, until volume 16; volumes 17 and 18 have been released as e-books only. The first volume was released on November 13, 1997 and the final chapter on January 22, 2021. A "deluxe edition" compiling the complete series in 10 volumes has been announced for 2021.[1][2]

Tokyopop licensed the series for an English-language release in North America and the United Kingdom, with the first volume of the series released there on April 6, 2004. On November 8, 2005, Tokyopop released a box set containing the first two volumes of the series. A total of 13 volumes have been translated and released as of December 8, 2009. However, Tokyopop announced that its North American division would closing on May 31, 2011, and only the series' digital version up to volume 13 is rescued by Viz Media.

In August 2003, while the primary series was on hiatus, a second manga series, D.N.Angel TV Animation Series began serialization in Monthly Asuka. Also written by Sugisaki, the short series was based on the anime adaptation, which had diverged from the storyline of the manga series. D.N.Angel TV Animation Series finished its serialization in the October 2003 issue. It was published in two tankōbon volumes by Kadokawa Shoten.
