In the 15th edition of Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine this year, readers bid farewell to Ryūdai Ishizaka’s manga adaptation of the Love Flops (Renai Flops) original TV anime. The story revolves around Asahi Kashiwagi, a student who experiences a string of peculiar mishaps on his way to school, all foretold by a vague morning TV fortune.

These incidents inevitably lead to unexpected encounters with various girls, most of whom are new students or teachers. Suspicion arises when Asahi’s friend, Yoshio, notices his knowledge of these girls. Later, a mysterious love letter in his shoe locker prompts Asahi to head to the cherry blossom tree behind the school, once again aligning with his morning fortune.
