The novel received a Special Judge Award in the novel category at the 7th Kyoto Animation Awards in 2016. Kyoto Animation then published the book under its KA Bunko imprint in December 2016 with illustrations by Chinatsu Morimoto.
The "archery youth story" novel follows Minato Narumiya. Minato played Japanese archery in middle school, but after a certain incident, he ran away from the sport. In high school, Minato meets new friends, and together as part of their school's archery club they aim to win the prefectural tournament.
