Masao's original "heartwarming boys-love gag" manga centers on the friendship of high school boys Asakura (Weiß Survive's Nobuhisa Nakamoto) who "wants to become a teacher at a girls' school in the future" and Ishida (Kamisama Kiss's Shūta Morishima) who "wants to become a florist with Asakura in the future." Tooru Sakurai and Saima Nakano play classmates Yamada and Satō, respectively, while Sumi Shimamoto (Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro) plays Kinoshita-sensei. Rayli performs the anime's theme song "Dokidokidoku."
Pippuya (Kachō no Koi) directed and storyboarded the anime at the studios Dax Production and Hotline (Shiba Inuko-san). Kenichi Yamashita (Ginga e Kickoff!!, Ginga Densetsu Weed) was in charge of the scripts, and PEN designed the characters.
The manga debuted in both Shonengahosha's main Young King magazine and Monthly Young King in 2011, and it ended after 15 installments in July 2012. Shonengahosha published the second compiled book volume with a previously unpublished ending in December 2012.
