RoGa began drawing a manga adaptation on the Comic Gardo web manga portal in February 2016. The seventh compiled volume shipped on October 24 last year.

J-Novel Club licensed the light novel in February 2017 and released the 11th volume digitally on December 14. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both the light novel and its manga adaptation for physical release in July and September 2017, respectively. The publisher shipped the sixth manga volume on March 9 and the 11th light novel volume on April 13.

looking forward to watching s2 despite the abomination that happened in s1.
the LN somewhat ok but s1 adaptation narrative and creative-wise are an absolute disaster.


I think the more you read, the better the LN gets, but certainly is not for everyone, but there are some really damm amazing fights later on, plus I just came to enjoy the harem girls a lot, especially Shea, so an improved S2 would be a sweet deal, not that I have watched S1, but I plan to eventually.

The studio isn't White Fox this time but looking at the PV, there wasn't much improvement.
Although rushed it's nice that they're still adapting this.

I'm not too surprised since from what I heard White Fox was just helping Asread finish the first season.
