Three months have passed since the Demon Lord was defeated, and the Demon Kingdom is holding a tournament to choose his replacement. The leading contestant is Helck, a human hero who claims to hate his own kind. Some were unhappy with the idea of humans becoming the next Demon Lord, especially Vermilio the Red. She wants nothing more than to protect the demons and prove Helck is their enemy, even if she has to stage a contest to do it!
Nanao began serializing the manga on the Manga ONE and Ura Sunday services in 2014, and ended it in 2017. Shogakukan published the manga in 12 volumes.
