Sasaki and Miyano synopsis
Shou Harusono’s Sasaki and Miyano manga launched on the pixiv website in 2016. Additionally, the manga’s seventh volume was published by Kadokawa in November 2020. There’s also a novel adaptation of the series, by Kotoko Hachijō, and a spinoff manga titled Hirano to Kagiura, following two of the series’ side characters. This spinoff has also inspired its own novel.
Yen Press licenses the manga, and describes its plot as follows:
It all started like a typical old-school boys’ love plotline—bad-boy senior meets adorably awkward underclassman, one of them falls in love, and so on and so forth. But although Miyano is a self-proclaimed boys’ love expert, he hasn’t quite realized…he’s in one himself. Which means it’s up to Sasaki to make sure their story has a happily ever after…!Yen Press
