Pressured by her friends and family to fall in love, office worker Hinako Uno puts a lot of effort into her appearance and demeanor in order to fit into the image of "an ideal young woman." She believes that if she is able to make someone fall in love with her, then she can love herself in return—but this does not turn out to be the case. After rejecting another confession, Hinako feels like a flawed human for being unable to love.

Concurrently, Hinako's senior at work Asahi Satou becomes her sister's official guardian and the family's breadwinner after their last living relative dies. Wanting to provide for her sister as best as she can, she pays no attention to matters she deems unnecessary, such as love.

One night, as Hinako cries on a bench, Asahi bumps into her and offers her a bag of doughnuts as consolation. Sharing a moment of vulnerability, they open up to one another, marking the start of a relationship that might just be what both women needed.

Compared to a story like bloom into you where a character that appears to be asexual and aromantic at first then developed those feelings during the series.

If you are something akin to Demiromantic/Demisexual, and/or Lesbian, this will probably be extremely down your ally. It's a lot of dealing with Amatonormativity, finding out their attractions, and their attachments, finding the words to communicate (Hard for Asahi), and exploring small meaningful, satisfactory forms of physical affection.

Asahi and Hinako have a few aroace traits. Don't believe me? Just give it a read.
The characters are all pretty dynamic, not entirely negative. They show more understanding and emotional intelligence than you would think. This series prides itself on telling you it's okay to be you, and about every character enables that idea in each other. Like ...

if you enjoy super slow burn romance, this is for you. the story is really nice, there isn't a lot of drama and it's mostly fluff. the author addresses a few topics like compulsory heterosexuality and asexuality in a very mild way, it's pretty subtle. the art is very beautiful, really cute. this manga was really lovable, it gives u a warm feeling. after all this compliments, i have to say this has some downsides too. the last volume was really underwhelming. since the story is so beautiful and wholesome, i was kinda expecting a more romantic finale, which i didn't get. the final chapters ...
