J-Novel Club licensed the manga and describes the story as:
Hi, I’m Hiiragi Utena. I’m a normal magical-girl-loving middle school girl—or at least I was, but then some talking mascot showed up out of the blue and cast a spell on me! Now’s my chance to join my beloved magical girls as…a villain? Hang on, something’s wrong with my outfit! This can’t be happening!
Watch this shy magical-girl fan transform into a sadistic dominatrix! When good and evil collide, who will be the one to submit?!
The manga started in 2019 in Takeshobo’s Manga Life Storia magazine, and moved to the magazine’s Storia Dash website after the magazine ceased publication.
