During the campaign, a different character is highlighted each week with exclusive voice clips on Sunday, character designs on Monday, original icon and wallpaper on Tuesday, a flower arrangement on Wednesday, and audio excerpt from the original novel series on Thursday, costume designs on Friday, and a question answered by the original author Amekawa on Saturday.

Kenichi Ōnuki (Golden Kamuy, AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline) is designing the characters, with Wakako Yoshida, Minoru Tanaka, and Chisa Shibata as sub-character designers.

Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed both the light novels and the manga adaptations. Seven Seas Entertainment describes the novels:

Being reborn once may sound impressive, but Rishe is already on her seventh time around! She has had all kinds of excitement in her previous lives, from peddling goods as a merchant to locking blades as a knight, so now she's determined to kick back and enjoy. But to savor the high life, she first has to marry the handsome prince…the same one who happens to be her murderer! It will take six-plus lifetimes of experience and skills for Rishe to break the time loop and make her extravagant dreams come true!

Tōko Amekawa launched the serialization of the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in February 2020, where it is still ongoing. Overlap published the first print volume with illustrations by Wan Hachipisu in October 2020. Overlap published the fifth novel volume on August 25. Seven Seas Entertainment will publish the fifth novel volume on April 23.

Hinoki Kino launched the novels' manga adaptation on Overlap's Comic Gardo manga website in December 2020. Overlap published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on August 25. Seven Seas Entertainment published the manga's fourth volume on December 5.
