Minami and Yuzu have been inseparable since elementary school. But now that they’re in high school, Minami just can’t accept that Yuzu may someday get a boyfriend. How come some random guy gets to wake her up in the morning, feed her lunch, take baths with her…? It doesn’t take long for Minami to realize that her feelings can’t quite be described as “friendship” anymore, but how can she get Yuzu to see her the same way?
Yasaka (Monologue Woven For You) launched the manga in Takeshobo‘s Manga Life Storia Dash website in April 2022. Takeshobo published the manga’s second compiled book volume on April 17.

It will publish the light novel series physically in March 2024 with an earlier digital release.

Claudia, daughter of a duke, is tricked by her wicked half-sister and sold off to a brothel. Unwilling to accept defeat, Claudia uses the tools at her disposal and becomes one of the most successful sex workers in her new home. That’s when she dies–only to be thrust back in time to age fourteen! Gone is the gullible girl of her academy days now that she’s got street savvy and hard-won seductive skills. It’s Claudia’s turn to play the evil villainess, and there’s nothing she won’t do to protect what’s hers!

Seven Seas describes the story:
Office lady Nishimura Kanna has had it with her boyfriend after discovering his cheating ways. When she breaks up with him, he insults her looks, bruising her self-confidence on top of breaking her heart. Then she runs into an old classmate, the androgynous Ichikawa Yuzuki, a man whose gorgeous appearance is a sharp difference from the boyish classmate Kanna remembers from their school days. Not only does she ask Yuzuki to help her become just as pretty, but she ends up pretending to be Yuzuki’s girlfriend, too! As things get hot and heavy between them, can a beautiful romance blossom from this “fake” relationship?
Cocoa debuted the manga in 2021, and the manga’s second compiled book volume shipped in Japan in June 2022.
