The "time-stopping yuri" manga centers on high school student Misuzu Moritani. Misuzu has the power to stop time for three minutes a day. One day, she uses that power to try to peek up the skirt of her classmate, the beautiful Haruka Murakami, but the power for some reason doesn't work on Haruka, and Haruka finds out Misuzu's secret.

Sato published the manga on Akita Shoten's "Champion Tap!" manga website (now known as Manga Cross) from 2013-2014. Akita Shoten published two compiled book volumes for the series.

Seven Seas Entertainment announced in September that it will release the manga in an omnibus edition on April 14, 2020.
