The first volume of the novel series was published from SB Creative's GA Bunko imprint in July 2013. The novel's eighth volume and its manga adaptation's fourth volume were simultaneously released in Japan two days ago, October 14. Back in April 2014 when the manga started its serialization on Square Enix's GanGan Online website, the series' total print run was 250,000 with six volumes. Mainly thanks to the TV anime adaptation produced by Silver Link and Nexus, the number has jumped up four times only in 18 months.
