Kageki Shoujo!! began in 2015 and has 11 tankōbon volumes as of July 2021, while Kageki Shojo!! The Curtain Rises ran from 2012 to 2014 and was collected into two tankōbon volumes.
Seven Seas Entertainment describes the story as:
Like the Takarazuka Revue, the young women who go to the arts academy Kouka Kageki High School play all the parts of musical theater, be they female or male. Narada Ai is a jaded former idol performing female roles—her roommate, playing male roles, is bright-eyed country girl Watanabe Sarasa. From the school to the stage to the rest of their lives, there is no challenge these young women can’t face with their passion for performance.
