Summary: Death Castle, the seat of power in the Demon World, is home to three demon kings...and a toddler?! The High Demon King, Death Mask, and his co-rulers Demon King Giant Rock and Demon King Dark Knight find that though they command powerful legions of evil, they aren't immune to a child's cries...and so the sweet, innocent human child Maris will grow up under their care! After all, how hard can raising a child be...?

Their desperation to keep the café open convinces Hayato to give it a shot...but even their best intentions might not be enough to make it work! And can he even work with these five unruly women? No matter what, he's got his work cut out for him! A fun new romcom by the author of Fuuka and Suzuka!

Seo (Fuuka, A Town Where You Live, Suzuka) launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in February 2021. Kodansha published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on September 16.

Nakamaru launched the manga in Kodansha's Magazine Pocket app in 2018. Kodansha published the 22nd compiled volume on September 9.
