You left out the best part: Universal Music Japan has released two albums to accompany the manga. There's an excerpt from one of the albums in this short article:

I can't comment on the musical quality, because it sounds like "weird modern shit" to me. (Translation for you hip folks: "it doesn't sound like cartoon music, so I don't care for it".)

Also, there's a fan translation (questionable legality, but then again, there's no official English translation that I can find) online here: https://mangadex.com/manga/16542 Scroll to the bottom of that page.
