Yoriko Tomita (As Miss Beelzebub Likes) is in charge of the series scripts, and Atsushi Soga (Devils and Realist) is handling additional sub-character designs.

Nimaru launched the light novel series with illustrations by Ui Shigure in June 2019, and Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko imprint published the sixth volume on February 10 with a drama CD.
