tankobon volume is set to be released in Japan on July 17. Kodansha USA has been digitally publishing its
English-language edition since April 2017. The English edition publisher introduces its story as below:
-High schooler Natsuo is hopelessly in love with his cheerful and popular teacher, Hina. However, one day at
a mixer, he meets a moody girl by the name of Rui and ends up sleeping with her. Soon after, his father
announces that he's getting remarried to a woman with two daughters of her own. And who shows up in tow,
other than both Hina and Rui?! Natsuo's outrageous new life starts now!
Shota Ihata (Girlish Number) serves as director at Diomedéa (Aho-Girl, BEATLESS), alongside series
