Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and blushes, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her...she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That's when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she's inspired to ask her for help. But when the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself, has her shoujo romance finally begun?
Nakatani launched the manga in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh in April 2015. Kadokawa published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on January 26, and will ship the sixth volume on September 26.
