Sakamori Kagami was one of the top players in the VRMMO Ark Earth Online as Danblf, a veteran summoner with the gravitas to match his elite status. When he falls asleep playing one day, he's transported to a world where the game is reality—but instead of his all-powerful avatar, he's stuck in the body of a cute young girl! He can't let anyone know that this little cutie is really Danblf, so he takes the name “Mira” and claims to be Danblf's disciple. If this gets out, he'll never live it down!
Keitaro Motonaga (Jormungand both seasons, Date A Live first three seasons) is directing the anime at Studio A-Cat. Takamitsu Kouno (Utawarerumono: The False Faces, Absolute Duo) is overseeing the series scripts, Kumi Horii (LBX Girls, Infinite Stratos 2) is designing the characters, Go Sakabe (Date A Live franchise, Digimon Adventure tri. film series) is composing the music, and Yasunori Ebina is the sound director.
Scott MacDonald is the art director, while Tsukasa Ohira is credited for art setting. Miyu Yamamoto is the color key artist. Tsubasa Yokoyama is the compositing director of photography, while Yoshiaki Kimura is editing. Yuichi Goto is the 3D director.
Ryusen began serializing the story on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" (Let's Become Novelists) website in April 2012, where it is still ongoing. Micro Magazine is publishing the story in print with illustrations by Fuzichoco (The 8th son? Are you kidding me?, R.O.D Rehabilitation art), beginning with the first print volume in June 2014.
Seven Seas published the first novel volume in print on August 12, and the first manga volume in print on July 20.
