Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is based on the romantic comedy manga of the same name by Asato Mizu (Denkigai no Honya-san). It first began serialization on Shounen Jump+ in 2017 and has collected 12 tankoubon volumes so far. The story revolves around closely seated classmates named Reina and Raidou. Reina is a small, quiet person whose inability to gauge personal space makes her unpredictable.
