Naomi Ide (Riddle Story of Devil, Kan Colle, Domestic Girlfriend) is designing the characters.
Yen Press licensed both the light novels and its manga adaptation. Yen Press describes the story:
Despite her supposed ineptitude with regular magic, Princess Anisphia defies the aristocracy’s expectations by developing “magicology,” a unique magical theory based on memories from her past life. One day, she witnesses the brilliant noblewoman Euphyllia unjustly stripped of her title as the kingdom’s next monarch. That’s when Anisphia concocts a plan to help Euphyllia regain her good name-which somehow involves them living together and researching magic! Little do these two ladies know, however, that their chance encounter will alter not only their own futures, but those of the kingdom…and the entire world!
Piero Karasu began serializing the story in the Shōsetsuka ni Narō! website in February 2019, and ended it in June 2020. He later began writing epilogue chapters for the story from August 2020 to August 2021. He also wrote a prologue chapter for the entire story in September 2020. Kadokawa published the first print volume of the story with illustrations by Yuri Kisaragi in January 2020. Kadokawa published the fifth novel volume on August 20.
Harutsugu Nadaka launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Kadokawa‘s Dengeki Maoh magazine in July 2020. Kadokawa published the manga’s fourth compiled book volume on August 26.
