Yen Press licensed the novels, and it describes the story:
Shut-in vampire Terakomari, or Komari for short, awakens from her slumber to find she’s been promoted to a commander of the army! The thing is, though, her new squad has a reputation for being violently insubordinate. And although Komari was born to a prestigious vampire family, her hatred of blood has made her the picture of mediocrity-scrawny, uncoordinated, and inept at magic. With the odds stacked against her, will the help of her trusty maid be enough for this recluse to blunder her way to success?
SB Creative Corp. began publishing the novels with illustrations by Riichu in January 2020. Riichu launched a manga adaptation in Square Enix‘s Big Gangan magazine in December 2021.
