The manga from Izumo Ito began in 2014 in the magazine and the four-panel work has four volumes out as of the end of 2018.
Plot Concept: The series is centered on Yūko Yoshida, a 15-year-old girl who awakens one morning with demonic power, and is tasked with defeating a local magical girl. She has horns and a tail, but truthfully less power than an ordinary girl. She struggles to lift the “curse of a 40,000 yen per month living.”
