The psychological horror manga's story centers on a beautiful high school girl named Satō Matsuzaka, who believes she has finally found the meaning of love when she begins living with a younger girl. Previously, Satō never refused the advances of any guy around her, but that changes when she meets the girl Shio. The background and age of the mysterious girl are unclear. When Satō is with Shio, she experiences a very sweet feeling, which she understands as love. In order to protect that feeling, Satō is willing to do anything, even if it means committing murder.

Keizou Kusakawa (KanColle, Fuuka) is serving as chief director, and Nobuyoshi Nagayama (My Girlfriend is Shobitch) is directing the anime at Ezo'la. Touko Machida (Dive!!) is in charge of the series scripts. Shōko Yasuda (Seven Mortal Sins) is designing the characters.

Youko Matsubara is the color key artist, and Kiyotaka Yachi is directing the background art. Yasuyuki Itou is the director of photography. Yuuji Oka is editing. Yayoi Tateishi is directing the sound, and Koichiro Kameyama is composing the music. Nanawoakari is performing the opening theme song.

Kagisora launched the manga in the magazine in 2015. Square Enix published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on August 22, and the seventh volume shipped on March 22.

Kagisora's other series include the manga adaptation of the Tari Tari anime, Kamiyome, and Fantasista Doll ~Prelude Kagami~.
