Six compiled volumes have been published so far in Japan, with one more needed to finish the series. CMX Manga will publish its fifth English-translated volume in January.
The story revolves around "Ryoko," a female high school student vice president who is actually Ryo, a budding male star in Japan's idol industry. A classmate named Yukari discovers Ryo's secret, but agrees to disguise herself as his male agent to help achieve his dreams.
