Kodansha's novel label Kodansha Taiga released the novels' first volume in 2015, followed by the second in 2016. The third and final volume shipped in November 2017. The novels are inspiring a television anime adaptation by Revoroot.

Nozaki wrote the script for the KADO - The Right Answer anime. His other novels include know and Fantasista Doll: Eve.
