Yen Press licensed both the light novels and the manga adaptation, and he describes the first volume:

Even in his past life, Cid’s dream wasn’t to become a protagonist or an end boss. He prefers to keep a low profile as a minor character until it’s time to reveal he’s a mastermind…or at least do the next best thing: pretend to be one! And now that he’s been reborn in another world, he’s ready to create the perfect conditions to fully live out his dreams. Armed with his wild imagination, Cid jokingly recruits members of his organization and makes up a whole story about an evil cult they must take down. Well, luckily, these imaginary adversaries turn out to be the real deal – and everyone knows the truth except him!

Aizawa began serializing the story on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” (Let’s Become Novelists) website in May 2018, and Kadokawa began publishing the story in physical volumes with art by Tozaistarting with the first volume in November 2018.
