Kodansha Comics began publishing the manga in English digitally in December 2017. Kodansha Comics is also publishing the manga in print. The company describes the manga:
Forget the familiar: circumstances wrest high schooler Meeko from an ordinary family life to her uncle’s boarding house, where she must learn to live with housework and … rather unusual adult housemates. What’s more, the oldest of the bunch, Matsunaga-san, is a little scary … but also always looks out for her! Presenting the first volume of Keiko Iwashita‘s boarding-house love story!
Iwashita launched the series in Dessert in December 2016. The manga ended in July 2021, with the 11th and final volume shipping in August 2021. A bonus 12th volume containing extra stories shipped in April this year.
