Yen Press has rendered all three volumes of the light novels in English. The premise reads: Following a middle-aged man’s demise in a traffic accident, his tale takes an unforeseen turn. Reborn as his life’s greatest fascination—a vending machine—his new existence unfolds within the most perilous of settings: a dungeon teeming with monsters. But how can a vending machine thrive amidst such adversity when it lacks speech and mobility?
Initiated in March 2016, Hirukuma serialized the narrative on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website, culminating in December that year. Subsequent epilogue stories were serialized from January to February 2017. Kadokawa’s Sneaker Bunko initiated print editions of the novels, featuring illustrations by Itsuwa Katō, starting with the inaugural volume in July 2016. The trilogy concluded with the third volume’s release in February 2017.
