Miyama launched the novel on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let's Be Novelists) website in June 2018. Moto Shigemura's manga adaptation debuted on Square Enix's Manga UP! app in January 2019. Square Enix published the manga's sixth compiled book volume in October 2021. Miyama and illustrator Hotosouka launched the light novel series in April 2019.
