To the eyes of high school student Chiyo Sakura, classmate Umetarou Nozaki – brawny of build and brusque of tongue – is a dreamboat! When Chiyo finally works up the courage to tell Nozaki how she feels about him, she knows rejection is on the table… but getting recruited as a manga-ka’s assistant? Never in a million years! But for someone who makes a living drawing sweet girly romances, Nozaki-kun is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to matters of the heart in reality. And so Chiyo’s daily life of manga making and heartache begins!
