The light novel will be written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo himself. 

Good work Shihei, for keeping me on my toes for a whole day because of this!

Some fans even thought that this was going to be an anime announcement…well, sorry to disappoint you, but that is a whole other story!

Had it been an anime announcement, all of us would have collectively lost our minds anyway.

This manga has got all the elements to keep you hooked on it and make you laugh like crazy! It has all the classic spy manga cliches and a lot of eccentric yet interesting characters as well.

For example, Anya, the Forger family’s fake daughter, can read minds and is by far the most self-aware character. (She is definitely my favorite character now.)
