The three English-language volumes of the light novels were released by Yen Press, and it gives the plot as follows:

A car accident provides the right ending for a middle-aged guy with only one interest in life. Most stories would finish there, but in this case, it’s the beginning of his tale since he’s been resurrected as the thing he most liked in the world: a vending machine! What can a vending machine in a dungeon overrun with monsters do for a man who can’t talk or even move on his own? But his new lease on life (?) occurs in the worst location conceivable.

In March 2016, Hirukuma started serializing the narrative on the Shsetsuka ni Nar website. The story was completed in December of that same year, and epilogue stories were published in January and February of 2017. With the release of the first book in July 2016, Kadokawa’s Sneaker Bunko started releasing the novels in print versions with illustrations by Itsuwa Kat. In February 2017, delivery of the third and final volume began.

In August 2021, Kunieda published a manga version of the novels in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh, published by Kadokawa.

Chapters of the manga are being released digitally by Yen Press concurrently with their release in Japan.
