The manga centers on Sayaka Minami, a 30-year-old woman who has no relationship experience, but has had a crush on her childhood friend since their college days. However, on the night before they were supposed to go on a date, Sayaka wakes up in the house of her junior from work, and she has lost some of her memory.
Amasawa launched the manga in Kodansha's Kiss magazine in 2014, and ended it in November 2015. Kodansha published two compiled book volumes for the manga.
