Kodansha USA Publishing has announced the English release of the manga, presenting an enticing tale:
While watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki is confronted with the devastating news of his long-lost middle school girlfriend, Hinata Tachibana, tragically falling victim to the notorious Tokyo Manji Gang. Trapped in a rundown apartment with paper-thin walls and enduring the condescension of a boss six years his junior, he also bears the weight of being a complete and utter stranger to intimate experiences. Plummeting to rock-bottom in his existence, a miraculous occurrence transports him back in time by a dozen years! Determined to rescue Hinata and rewrite his history of fleeing, Takemichi, an aimless part-timer, embarks on an arduous journey to conquer the treacherous hierarchy of Kanto’s most nefarious delinquent syndicate.
