Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix’s Big Gangan magazine in 2012, with Square Enix set to publish the seventh volume on December 24th. While Yen Press are planning to release the series in print for English readers, Crunchyroll are publishing the manga digitally, and they describe the story:
Hanabi and Mugi are bathed in envious gazers from all around as a beautiful couple with excellent moral conduct. But these two apparently perfect people in an apparently perfect relationship share a secret they can’t tell anyone.
