Additionally, the website included a release date for the novel series.
Mika Toyoda will work on the novel series as illustrator. These novels will be the latest addition to the famous franchise. The popularity of the original manga has inspired an anime television series as well. The first season of the anime ran from January 2019 to March 2019.
