The story follows the everyday life of Itsuki, a novelist and "modern day Pygmalion" who works day in and day out to create the ultimate younger sister. He is surrounded by various other characters: a beautiful genius writer who loves him, his big-sisterly classmate from college, a fellow male writer, a sadistic tax accountant, and his editor. They're all looked after by Itsuki's perfect younger "step-brother," Chihiro, who has a big secret.
Hirasaka writes the novel series, and Kantoku (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) provides the illustrations. Since 2015, Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint has published 650,000 copies of the light novel series' first six volumes. The seventh volume shipped on May 18 with a special edition bundling a drama CD.
