Check out our high-school-girl survival story of courage and knowledge. We're actually doing pretty well! Volume 1 includes: how to eat cicadas, how to build traps, a simple allergy test, how to eat hermit crabs, etc.

Okamoto and Sagara launched the manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine in January 2017. Kodansha published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on March 6.
