The main characters, the protagonist Kaede Komura (left) and the glasses girl Ai Mie (right) without her glasses, are holding a white board that has the text with the anime adaptation announcement and the premiere date.
Koume Fujichika originally launched the manga on Twitter and began the ongoing serialization on Monthly Gangan Joker in November of 2019.

“If we can continue to keep getting closer like this, I’ll be happy…”
Kaede Komura has a huge crush on his seat partner, Mie-san. She, however, has terrible eyesight, and tends to either forget or break her glasses! Komura-kun offers her a helping hand, and as they grow closer, their feelings for each other grow too.
