High schooler Natsuo is hopelessly in love with his cheerful and popular teacher, Hina. However, one day at a mixer, he meets a moody girl by the name of Rui and ends up sleeping with her. Soon after, his father announces that he's getting remarried to a woman with two daughters of her own. And who shows up in tow, other than both Hina and Rui?! Natsuo's outrageous new life starts now!

Sasuga launched the ongoing series in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in April 2014. Kodansha shipped the 20th volume on October 17. The manga has 3 million copies in print. Crunchyroll is also publishing chapters of the manga as they are released in Japan.
