The new will they-won’t they romance from the creator of Teasing Master Takagi-san is here! Ayumu is in love with his senpai Yaotome, but he’s sworn not to confess his feelings until he can beat her at the board game shogi… The problem is, his love is obvious to Yaotome, and she can’t stop trying to trick him into breaking his vow! Fall in love again, fans of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, Komi Can’t Communicate, and Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie!
