Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the original manga in English, and gave this description for its plot:
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!
The manga debuted in 2018, originally being published by Weekly Shonen Champion magazine. Because of some business moves it was later published elsewhere.
