The protagonist of the manga is Alto Goldfield, a student at a magical school who aspires to learn all magic. On the other hand, he discovers an old summoning grimoire just as he is about to flunk a class on summoning magic and risk being sent back a year. He inscribes a magic circle in accordance with its directives, which leads to the summoning of a potent demon named Vermeil who had been sealed for a very long time. He then makes Vermeil his familiar. Alto occasionally provides the voluptuous Vermeil with the mystical energy, which she claims by giving him a passionate kiss.
The anime at Staple Entertainment was directed by Takashi Naoya (Osamake, Val x Love, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru), with Tatsuya Takahashi (The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Ms. Koizumi likes ramen noodles, Domestic Girlfriend) overseeing the screenplays. The assistant director was Matsuo Asami. The characters were created by Ayana Togashi and Kiyoshi Tateishi (Val x Love, Gekidol). Along with Toshimitsu Kobayashi, Yukiyo Komito, and Atsushi Aono, Tateishi served as the primary animator. The CG director was Hiroyuki Ikeda. The color key artist was Ryoji Nagasaki, while the art director was Hiroki Ozaki. Tomomi Umetsu was in charge of editing, and Mitsuhiro Kuno served as the compositing director of photography.
The anime’s “Abracada-Boo” theme song was sung by Kaori Ishihara. The song “Mortal With You,” the epilogue of the anime, was sung by Mili.
In August 2018, Square Enix’s Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine published Amana and Umezu’s first chapter of the manga.
The manga’s sixth collected volume was released by Square Enix on June 10.
