The anime is an adaptation of the romantic comedy manga penned by Kai Ikada. Initially, the manga began as a one-shot, but due to its popularity, it was serialized in Shonen Jump+ starting from 2019. Manga Plus provides a glimpse into the story:
High school boy Tsubasa moves to Kitami City in Hokkaido, where he stumbles upon a “gal” at a bus stop. The sight of her standing solitarily against the snowy backdrop, her legs bare despite the chilling cold, leaves an indelible mark on his heart.
As of July 2023, the manga boasts 11 tankoubon volumes.
