Kodansha Comics, who publishes the series’ official English version, describes the series as:

Shikimori seems like the perfect girlfriend: cute, fun to be around, sweet when she wants to be…but she has a cool dark side that comes out under the right circumstances. And her boyfriend Izumi loves to be around when that happens! A fun and funny high school romance with a sassy twist, perfect for fans of Nagatoro-san and Komi Can’t Communicate!
