Kodansha later acquired the title in 2017 and began publishing it in print with illustrations by Sukima.J-Roman Clublicensed the series in English and they describe the first volume as follows:
One day, the supervisor in charge of monitoring the Earth was taking care of a warp when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose his physical body. Not only that, but reincarnating her in a different, less culturally advanced world is the only thing they can offer to do for her. Not one to take this turn of events sitting down, Kaoru makes a demand: the power to create potions whenever he wants, to whatever effect he wants—and it doesn’t stop there, either. She wants a magical item box, the ability to understand and speak any language, and the same body she had when she was a fifteen-year-old girl. Using her newfound powers, Kaoru must try to build a stable life for herself in a whole new world!
