Shueisha’s Manga PLUS app currently serializes the manga in English and describes it as such:


High school boy Tsubasa moves to Kitami City up in Hokkaido, where he meets a “gal” at a bus stop. The sight of her standing alone against the white snowscape, bare-legged despite the freezing cold, captures his heart.


The manga and anime will also be featured during this year’s installment of Jump Festa being held on the weekend of December 17-18, with Ayane Sakura participating in a scheduled stage event at the Jump Studio NEO stage, with more details to be released in the future. The manga began serialization in 2019, with the 9th volume being released next month in Japan.
