The Quality Assurance in Another World anime is based on a manga series by Masamichi Sato, which is published in America by Kodansha USA Publishing. Kodansha gave this description for the plot:
Nikola is just a village girl working at the inn…until the day dragons invade, and she meets Haga, a scholar of everything around him. He’s a part of an elite society called “Seeker,” created to address a series of maladies plaguing their usually peaceful world. But both Nikola and Haga have secrets they hide…ones that will change each other’s very existence…
The manga made its debut on Comic Days from Kodansha back in 2020.
