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 that is on the brink of collapse.
Kuontamu published the story on the Kakuyomu story website in 2017. Kadokawa is publishing the story in print with illustrations by Amano, and it released the third volume in October 2018.
