The Tokyo-based publisher Shueisha has been serializing the manga since 2019 in their Shōnen Jump+ online magazine. It is also published on the Manga Plus website.
Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,
“In an ongoing battle between the Imperial Army and the Hellhorde, the princess from the army has been captured along with her holy sword Ex. Since regular torture is prohibited by the prisoner of war treaty between the two parties, the grand inquisitor, Torture Tortura, employs unusual “torture” (in air quotes) techniques, usually in the form of tempting foods and snacks from Japanese culture. The princess relents, but gives information that is usually trivial in nature, and the few times she does give useful information, the Hell-Lord does not take advantage of it.
The manga ranked second at the 2020 Next Manga Award in the web manga category.
