Meet Kazuto, whose hopes of becoming a photographer didn't pan out, and Yayoi, who successfully achieved her dream of becoming a model.

Two childhood friends who have grown apart... Suddenly find themselves living together!

In the beginning, there's an awkward tension between them, and Yayoi has a secret she can't tell Kazuto...

Then, one night, things start to change... Could they be more than just childhood friends...?!

Suika launched the Yaribeya Gurashi manga in WWWave Corporation's ComicFesta website in 2022. Suiseisha released the manga in print under the new Yoasobi Gurashi title on April 18.

WWWave Corporation owns the ComicFesta web manga service, as well as the AnimeFesta anime programming block. AnimeFesta (formerly Anime Zone and ComicFesta Anime) has produced short anime adaptations of over 25 manga from ComicFesta in the past seven years, with many of the manga being adult or risque in nature. The first AnimeFesta anime was On a Lustful Night Mingling with a Priest (Sōryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni...), whose Japanese title has led to AnimeFesta anime sometimes being called "Sōryo-waku" (Sōryo-type) by fans. Most of the anime series have two different versions: a "broadcast" version (the censored version aired on television), and a "premium" uncensored version distributed online. WWWave Corporation releases many of the anime title in English on its Coolmic website.

The latest AnimeFesta anime was Adam's Sweet Agony (Modaete yo, Adam-kun), the anime of Toyo's manga of the same name. AnimeFesta started streaming the first anime episode on December 8. The Tokyo MX and BS11 television channels, as well as the YouTube and Niconico streaming services, began running the anime on January 7. The Coolmic manga and anime website began streaming an English-subtitled version of the anime on December 26. AnimeFesta recently announced the anime adaptation of Ayaka Matsumoto's Unexpectedly Naughty Fukami (Yatara Yarashii Fukami-kun) manga under its toridori boys love brand.
