A manga adaptation by Kotora Kino was released in 2015, with 13 tankoubon volumes released as of December 2023. It is published digitally in English by Alpha Manga. 

The light novels also inspired a TV anime adaptation in 2021, with the first season airing from July 2021 to September 2021 and the ongoing second season airing from January 8, 2024. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime series outside of Japan. 

Hanashi Media describes the synopsis of Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy as: 

Makoto Misumi was an average, everyday high schooler, who found himself shipped off to another world at his parents’ whims. Upon arrival, however, he’s insulted by the Goddess for being too ugly and thrown into a desolate wasteland. He frantically searches for human warmth and connection, but can find nothing but monsters and inhuman settlers. When he finally meets companions he can trust, they turn out to be a pair of powerful perverts in a former dragon and a former giant spider! His high-octane, incredibly misfortunate trek through this foreign world has only just begun!
