Hisayoshi Hirasawa (Miss Bernard said., Netsuzou Trap -NTR-, Ojisan to Marshmallow) is slated to be the chief director of the anime at studio Creators in Pack (Love is Like a Cocktail, Kiitaro's yokai picture diary, Miss Bernard said.). Yū Fujisaki is the animation director, Kouji Hayashi (Love is Like a Cocktail, Ojisan to Marshmallow) is the director of photography, Miyuki Ueji is in charge of 2D works, and Taichi Hatanaka is the animation producer.
The manga's story begins when Astra, a 35-year-old former head of the Imperial Knights, acquires his own house, retires early, and prepares to live a quiet domestic life. However, on the first day of Astra's retired home life, a young witch named Noa crashes into his home, and forces him to take her as a servant.
The manga launched alongside Shogakukan's Manga ONE app in December 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's ninth volume on December 12. The series has 450,000 copies in print. Narita launched a new manga titled KILLING ME/KILLING YOU alongside Kadokawa's new Bessatsu Dragon Age magazine on September 25.
