Kodansha USA Publishing started publishing the manga in English digitally in 2020. The company published the manga's first compiled book volume physically in English in January 2023, and released the sixth volume on January 23. Kodansha USA Publishing describes the manga's story:

Hotaru is a 16-year-old high school first-year who has always been ambivalent about love, preferring instead to have a lively life with her family and friends. So when she sees her schoolmate, Hananoi-kun, sitting in the snow after a messy, public breakup, she thinks nothing of offering to share her umbrella. But when he asks her out in the middle of her classroom the next day, she can't help but feel that her life is about to change in a big way …

Morino launched the manga in Kodansha's Monthly Dessert magazine in December 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 14th compiled book volume in November 2023. The manga has over 3.8 million copies in circulation. The manga won the Best Shōjo Manga award in Kodansha's 45th Manga Awards in 2021.
