Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump has been serializing the series since April 2020 with a total of 10 volumes currently available. Yen Press is licensing the manga in English and describes the first volume as:
Gorou is a gynecologist and idol fan who’s in shock after his favorite star, Ai, announces an impromptu hiatus. Little does Gorou realize that he’s about to forge a bond with her that defies all common sense! Lies are an idol’s greatest weapon in this outrageous manga from Aka Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Mengo Yokoyari (Scum’s Wish).
