The manga follows Meiko Uehara, a college student who started working part-time at a PC store in 1992. However, the store was just a front for its actual business: a developer. erotic game developer for bishōjo games. Due to the sudden departures of the staff, Meiko ended up working as a secondary illustrator — even though she had never drawn adult illustrations before. Her life as an author begins when she tries to make a erotic game without trouble.
Wakaki (The World God Only Knows) co-wrote the manga with Misato Mitsumi and Tatsuki Amazuyu based on their real-life experiences at AQUAPLUS. They first distributed the manga as a dōjinshi at Comic Market in December 2016. Kadokawa then began publishing the manga in September 2020, with two volumes released in November 2021.
