Yen Press licensed the novels' manga adaptation, and it describes the story:
In Japan, there are seven superhuman highschoolers who are world-class geniuses in various fields ranging from governance to economics and beyond. On one fateful day, these seven wind up in a plane accident and wake up only to find themselves in another world.
Finding themselves in a foreign place where magic and beast-people are real, they immediately proceed to panic-or at least that's what would've happened if they were some run of the mill students!!
If anything, these seven are actually using their talents to do absolutely ludicrous things so they can go home...
"Let's take it easy, because if we really let loose, I'm pretty sure we'll end up destroying this world."
Misora launched the novel series with illustrations by Sacraneco in 2015. The manga adaptation by Kōtarō Yamada launched in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in May 2016.
