Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:
“I encountered her … a cute, but 'weird' sempai!” Magic-loving but stage-fright-addled, this sempai comes with a failure rate of 100%—but you can't take your eyes off her! The off-color, magical gag manga that's caused an uproar all over Japan is finally here! Here's to non-athletic hobbies!
Azu launched the manga in Young Magazine in February 2016, and Kodansha published the manga's fifth volume on November 6. Kodansha Comics published the fifth volume digitally on February 5.
