The manga has been serialized in KADOKAWA's Monthly Shonen Ace since November 2016 and has released four tankobon volumes. Its story follows Japanese pro-wrestler Genzo Shibata, who is summoned to an another world during the world championship title match against his strongest rival MAO (Macadamian Ogre). Because he is a deep animal lover, he refuses a request from Princess Artena to kill the demon king and his evil beast in the wood. Instead, he decides to open a pet shop to make a living in the another world.


In full cooperation with the three manga creators, the TV anime will tell an untold first six-month life of the protagonist Genzo after he was summoned, which has not been explained in the manga story.
