Yen Press has English distribution rights for the novels and the company portrays the series as following:

“In a world where the Demon King has died, a host of demigods capable of felling him have inherited the world: a master fencer who can figure out how to take out their opponent with a single glance; a lancer so swift they can break the sound barrier; a wyvern rogue who fights with three legendary weapons at once; an all-powerful wizard who can speak thoughts into being; and an angelic assassin who deals instant death. Eager to attain the title of “One True Hero,” these champions each pursue challenges against formidable foes and spark conflicts themselves. The battle to determine the mightiest of the mighty begins.”

Keiso is the author of the Japanese light novel series Ishura. Before being purchased by ASCII Media Works, it was originally posted on the novel-posting websites Kakuyomu and Shsetsuka ni Nar. ASCII Media Works then published the series with artwork by Kureta under their Dengeki no Shin Bungei banner. There have been six volumes published as of August 2022. Beginning in March 2021, a manga adaptation with Meguri’s drawings will be serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shnen Magazine. Its chapters have been compiled into two volumes as of December 2021.
