Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, Maesetsu! Opening Act, The Faraway Paladin) is credited as chief director, while Hisashi Ishii (Rainy Cocoa side G, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) is directing the series at EMT Squared. Shigeru Murakoshi (Zombie Land Saga, to the abandoned Sacred Beasts, The Gymnastics Samurai) is in charge of the series scripts. Yūki Nakano (A Destructive God Sits Next to Me, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) is designing the characters.
The story centers on Leo, a hero who once saved the world from a demon army's invasion. However, he was feared and ostracized by people afterward, and ended up with no job. Feeling that his skills would be better appreciated elsewhere, he joins the demon lord's army that he once fought. Now in a new work environment, Leo strives to use his skills and revive the demon army which is on the brink of collapse.
Kuontamu began serializing the story in the Kakuyomu story website in January 2017. Kadokawa is publishing the story in print with illustrations by Amano, and it released the first volume in December 2017. The fourth volume shipped in August 2020.
