【Novel author: Dojyomaru】
I wasn't expecting of it becoming the TV anime! One day, when I had a conversation about media mix, I was summoned to the Overlap Bunko headquarters. I remember spacing out when the boss of the manager told me, “It was decided to create an animation (95%)”.
At that time, I was wondering if it ever would be turned into a CD drama…
This is also thanks to the artist Fuyuyuki, Ueda Satoshi, who is in charge of the manga version, the people involved in the overseas translation, and, above all, the readers who support this novel.
I will do my best to meet your expectations, so I look forward to your continued support.
