The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! is based on a manga by Wakame Konbu.

Jahy-sama manga started publishing in 2017, and it currently has 62 chapters. Square Enix, the English publisher for the series, describes the plot as:
The Great Jahy, the Dark Realm’s second-in-command, cuts a frightening figure, feared and revered by all. But when a run-in with a magical girl results in the destruction of the precious mana crystal, the Dark Realm falls, transporting the newly puny and powerless Jahy to the human world! Unfortunately, plotting the revival of the Dark Realm from a cramped, crumbling one-room apartment is no easy feat when you have rent to pay and a job to keep!
Silver Link studio is animating the series. Among their most popular works are the Non-Non Biyori series and A Sister’s All You Need. In addition, they also animated some of the biggest hits of the last year, such as My Next Life as a Villainess.
