The manga's story centers on Yuiga, a student who is aiming for a scholarship because he comes from a poor family. His school gives him a condition: he can have a recommendation for a scholarship if he tutors his two beautiful classmates to help them get into the schools of their choice. Ogata may be a science genius and Furuhashi a literature prodigy — but Ogata is aiming for a liberal arts school and Furuhashi is aiming for a science school. And they're both clueless outside their fields of expertise.
Tsutsui launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2017, and the eighth compiled book volume shipped on September 4. As of May 2, the series has 1 million copies in print.
Viz Media previewed the first three chapters of the manga for free as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and added the manga as a regular series for its digital English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump in April 2017.
