Synopsis for Sasaki to Miyano
Yoshikazu Miyano is a meek high school student who likes to read boys-love manga. One day, he finds himself in the position of breaking up a fierce school fight, not knowing what to do. Before things get any worse, he is interrupted by upperclassman Shuumei Sasaki, who bravely takes his place and saves Miyano from his grief. Since that day, Miyano admires him in silence. However, three months later, Miyano realizes that Sasaki is more annoying than admirable. At school, Miyano is greeted by him with playful taunts, not to mention the frequent friendly snubs he receives. When Sasaki asks for manga recommendations, Miyano lends him a boys-love manga that he has. Surprisingly, Sasaki ends up enjoying its content and is also hooked on boys-love, marking the beginning of a shared passion. Could it become something else?
