There is also manga adaptation by Pureji Osho in Kadokawa Shoten’s Shonen Ace Plus, which also began in January 2021.
Yen Press has licensed both the Sasaki and Peeps light novel and manga in English, and they describe the story for the light novel:
SWORDS AND SORCERY! PSYCHIC BATTLES?! MAGICAL GIRLS?!?! Tired and unfulfilled by his dead-end job, Sasaki decides to adopt Peeps, an adorable pet Java sparrow. Peeps, however, is really Piercarlo, a powerful sage from another world! After Peeps bestows Sasaki with magic and the ability to cross worlds, the two decide to export household items for profit in pursuit of a leisurely lifestyle. But when Sasaki’s new magic gets him mixed up in a whole other kind of supernatural struggle back in Japan, will it destroy his chances at realizing the relaxing life of his dreams?
