The manga has been serialized in Kadokawa/Ascii Media Works' monthly magazine Comic Dengeki Daioh
"g" since December 2013, and currently three tankobon volumes are available in Japan. The story centers on
Gabriel, who was sent down to Earth to learn about humans after graduating from the Angel School in the
upper world. But she soon finds various amusements on Earth and falls into a debauched, "Dropout" life.
Doga Kobo works on production of the anime adaptation. Masahiko Ota, who recently worked on Himouto!
Umaru-chan, is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri, Umaru-chan)
and character designer Masahiro Katsutani (We Are Luck & Logic Club).
