The series is based on the Japanese shōjo manga series of the same title also known as "Tokyo Babylon: A Save Tokyo City Story", which is created by CLAMP, with story by Nanase Ohkawa and illustration by Mokona. It is also based on a dōjinshi also written by CLAMP but the company decided to add dark social themes in the serialization as a result of the chapters' length. The manga were published by Shinshokan in Japan from 1990 to 1993 and collected total of seven tankōbon volumes. The English-language version of the manga was first distributed by Tokyopop and is now in possession of Dark Horse Comics.

The series was adapted into a two-part original video animation series by the studio Madhouse between 1992 and 1994 and PDS also produced a live-action feature film sequel, Tokyo Babylon 1999, which was released on August 21, 1993.

The story follows Subaru Sumeragi, the head of the Sumeragi clan, and his sister Hokuto as they work to protect Tokyo from a myriad of supernatural perils. With Subaru's character development reflected in the series, Tokyo Babylon has been well received for its focus on occultism and social themes. The manga is also notorious for its open and tragic ending which is followed in Clamp's manga X.
