The anime is based on the manga by Koume Fujichika which was initially launched on the author’s Twitter account in April 2018. Square Enix’s Monthly Gangan Joker magazine later acquired the title in November of that same year. Comikey is publishing the English edition digitally and they describe the plot as:
“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.
