The manga has been serialized on Ichijinsha’s Comic POOL website since January 2015 and has released seven tankobon volumes, printing more than one million copies in Japan so far. Its TV anime adaptation is animated by Nomad (Dropkick on My Devil!), with Naomi Nakayama (Orange series director) directing. Yuko Kakihara (Cells at Work!) serves as the series composition writer, alongside Mariko Fujita (URAHARA) as the anime character designer/chief animation director.
The TV anime is scheduled to premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in April 2021, then will be also aired on TOKYO MX, Hokkaido Bunka Housou, Miyazaki Housou, BS Fuji, and other station in the same month.
One rainy day, Ryo Amakusa, an office worker, was rescued by an unknown high school girl at the station. He learns that the girl is his sister’s best friend, Ichika Arima. Ryo, who often gets into trouble because of women, proposes kisses and dates to Ichika as a way of saying thank you, but he is rejected as “disgusting.” However, it opens a new door in Ryo’s mind, and he falls madly in love with her. Since that day, Ryo’s straightforward approaches and love expressions have continued every day. Ichika, who is totally uncomfortable with the situation, abuses him mercilessly, but he always receives it as a backhanded expression of her affection for him…
