Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:
Naoya just got a girlfriend, the gorgeous Saki-chan, and though their intensities often pit them against each other like ice and fire, they're totally, uncontrollably in love with each other. He vows never to cheat...when out of the blue he receives another confession! Nagisa's cute, sweet, and she's made him lunch to boot! He knows he can't cheat, but he can't let a cutie like this get away...so he does the logical(?) thing: Asks Saki for permission to date them both! The confidence! The arrogance! The very gall! No matter the outcome, Naoya's future will be lively!
Satoshi Kuwabara (The Quintessential Quintuplets) directed the first season at Tezuka Productions. Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) was in charge of series scripts. Akiko Toyoda (Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions) designed the characters and served as chief animation director. Keiichirō Ōchi, Kazuhiko Inukai, and Mayumi Morita wrote the scripts. Miki Sakurai and Tatsuhiko Saiki composed the music
Hiroyuki launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2020.
