Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
Ichikawa Kyotaro, a boy barely clinging to the bottom rung of his school's social ladder, secretly believes he's the tortured lead in some psychological thriller. He spends his days dreaming up ways to disrupt his classmates' peaceful lives and pining after Anna Yamada, the class idol. But Kyotaro's not nearly the troubled teen he pretends to be...and it turns out Anna's a bit odd herself!
Sakurai launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in March 2018. The manga moved to Akita Shoten's Champion Cross manga website in April 2018. When Champion Cross merged with Akita Shoten's other manga website Champion Tap! to form the new website Manga Cross in July 2018, the manga moved to that new site. Akita Shoten published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on August 8. Seven Seas Entertainment published the manga's fifth volume on October 4.
