Great news!

What is up with the English release’s description though? It feels a bit misleading regarding the “twist”.

The promo video for the manga had Hayamin as the female lead, so I hope they keep that intact for the anime.

Who's Hayamin? If you mean Hachimitsu introduced in chapter 17, she's just a side character. There's no point starring a side character in a main role, the manga is a romcom between Izumi and Shikimori and the anime will be also...

I think it's obvious but he probably meant Hayami Saori ,the voice actress was doing the voice of the female lead.

Oh, didn't think of that. True, she's a good choice.

Aww the manga is digital only in English? That’s a bummer, I’d be much more likely of buying it printed.
Edit: Oops guess I was mistaken. I checked the original ANN announcement for the Kodansha license but for some reason I interpreted it as being digital only. I haven’t seen it at my local bookstore lately despite seeing all of Kodansha’s other new releases, so just wasn’t aware of it. My bad Anime smile + sweatdrop

What are you smoking? Even the ANN release stated in the licensing announcement they're for print too...

And here's where you can order the print copy of the first volume..
