Yen Press licensed the manga and it describes the story:
It all starts off like a typical old school boy’s love story – the evil class president meets a lovable clumsy underclassman, one of them falls in love, and so on and so forth and so forth. . But even though Miyano is an expert on boys’ love, he hasn’t fully realized… he is in love himself. That means it’s up to Sasaki to make sure their story has a happy forever…!
Harusono launched the manga on the pixiv website in 2016. Kadokawa published the manga’s seventh volume in November 2020. Kotoko Hachijō penned an adaptation of the novel, which was released in March 2020. The manga Hirano to Kagiura’s spin-off of the two supporting characters debuted in 2019 and ran in Monthly Comic Gene magazine. That spinoff manga has in turn adapted its own novel.
