Yen Press is publishing the light novels and their manga adaptation in English, and it describes the story:
A great war has raged for years between the scientifically advanced Empire and Nebulis, the realm of magical girls—until the youngest knight ever to receive the title of the Empire's strongest meets the princess of the rival nation. Though they are sworn enemies, the knight is taken by her beauty and dignity, and the princess is moved by his strength and way of life. Will the fighting between them ever be allowed to end?
Kadokawa began publishing the novels in print in Japan in May 2017. Okama launched the manga adaptation in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine in May 2018.
