The manga follows the life of aspiring novelist Sumireko Ogawa, who at the age of 15 received the Rookie Award and was originally serialized on the Yawaraka Spirits website in 2019. She also shares a job at a bookstore with the oddball boy Ren Adashino.

They try to figure out what’s going on when strange things start happening around them.

Staff roles and responsibilities have not been disclosed. On July 12, Shogakukan will release the manga’s sixth collected volume.

Even though it appears to be a calm and quiet plot, the manga adds a mysterious element to keep us interested. It’s a realistic noir-style manga, unlike many thrillers which seem to mix fantasy or the supernatural. Make sure to give this one a try.
