Manami Koyama serves as the art director, Ayami Minowa as the color key designer, Rena Tanimoto as the director of photography, Masafumi Kajino as the editor, and Kazuya Tanaka as the sound director. Additionally, the theme song titled “lol” is performed by Gang Parade.

English-speaking fans can enjoy the manga through Shueisha’s MANGA Plus service and Viz Media, both of which digitally publish it simultaneously with the Japanese release. Viz Media also began releasing compiled volumes of the manga digitally in October 2021. The story, as described by Viz Media, takes place in a world where most families own adorable maid robots. Young Bondo, an average elementary school student, yearns for one of his own. However, when a peculiar and eccentric robot arrives, Bondo’s expectations are surpassed.

Shūhei Miyazaki debuted the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2020, captivating readers with its unique premise and delightful characters.
