The anime will debut on television in Japan on Tokyo MX on July 3, but will premiere on the ABEMA streaming service before that on June 26.

The anime stars (character name romanizations not confirmed):

Norihiko Nagahama (episode director for Black Butler, Gintama, Laid-Back Camp) is directing the series at Studio A-Cat. Touko Machida (Battle Game in 5 Seconds, The IDOLM@STER, My Master Has No Tail) is overseeing the series scripts, Masami Sueoka (I've Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills) is the character designer, and KOHTA YAMAMOTO (Attack on Titan Final Season THE FINAL CHAPTERS, Kingdom, Chained Soldier) is composing the music. Satoshi Motoyama is the sound director, Pony Canyon is in charge of music production, and Bit Grooove Promotion is in charge of sound production.

KOHTA YAMAMOTO feat. Shun Ikegai performs the opening theme song "Ctrl C."

Happinet specifically states the anime is adapting the manga adaptation of the original light novel series. Happinet describes the story:

Ike is known as "the strongest magician in the demon king's army" and is a single-handedly conquering fortresses.

The way he mowed down the enemies with his immense magic is truly a "monster" that makes him feared by both allies and foes alike.

However, he had a secret that he could not tell other demons.

"--I'm actually human."

Aiming for a coexistence between demons and humans while the leader of demon's army is hiding the fact that he is actually a human!?

Hata (The Reformation of the World as Overseen by a Realist Demon King, A Boy Raised by Gods Will Be The Strongest) launched the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in February 2016, and the latest update was in November 2022. Futabasha published the fifth novel volume in April 2018.

Anajiro launched the manga adaptation in 2019, and the manga runs on Futabasha's Gaugau Monster website. The manga's 10th compiled book volume shipped on January 30.
