The manga centers on Takashi Tōno, a boy who has just transferred to Morimori Academy, a private boarding school deep in the mountains. He meets Yaguchi, his first and only friend, but as he is bad at sports he does not join the soccer club with Yaguchi. He opts instead for the easy photography club. but finds that it is also called the "Playboy Bitch Club," and is filled with many colorful and interesting upperclassmen. Another boy named Kashima joins at the same time as Tōno, and ends up confessing to Tōno on the spot. Tōno finds Yaguchi cute, but Yaguchi can't help but blush and be embarrassed around Kashima.
Gentosha published the manga's second book volume last May.
