The "healing comedy" manga centers on Nakano, an employee of an exploitative "black" company, who meets a divine fox spirit named Senko. While she looks like a young girl, Senko is in fact 800 years old. She offers to spoil Nakano as much as possible, and begins looking after him.
Rimukoro launched the manga on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website in October 2017. Kadokawa published the manga's third volume on December 10. The manga ranked #16 in the web manga category of Niconico's Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards last year.
