Suzune Horikita wants nothing to do with her annoying classmates. All she wants is her distant older brother, the student council president, to acknowledge her presence. Horikita turns to a student almost as antisocial as she is, Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, for help. Despite a rocky start, Horikita and Ayanokouji spark a friendship. But can their growing relationship survive the suffocating and cutthroat atmosphere of their elite school?

Mixed Feelings
I read this manga with very low expectations from the negative reviews, only to be pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this short two-volume series. There may be more coming soon in some form, as「おわり次回作にご期待ください。」means "The end, please look forward to the next work."

In personal terms, I liked it.

YouJitsu, but with slightly more fanservice and much less point.

While reading this, I wasn’t able to find out reason why should I even keep reading it. Sure, short spin-offs like this are usually inferior to the main story and are more of a bonus for fans, but still. For a “romcom” alternative take, the romance falls flat, and definitely out of character – and not in a good way. For comedy, there is suspiciously low amount of jokes - and no amount of funny ones. Being a “what if”, it does not expand on the characters, as practically those aren’t the characters you know, those ...
