The original Seikaisha-published Tomo-chan is a Girl! manga series was first serialized on the Twi4 Twitter account and Saizensen website in 2015. It ended in 2019 with eight tankoubon volumes, which were published under the Seikaisha Comics label.

Seven Seas Entertainment releases the manga in English. It describes the story as:

Tomo and Jun have been best buds since they were little kids, but now that they’re in high school, Tomo wants to be more than friends…too bad Jun just sees her as ‘one of the guys.’ Tomo may be a tomboy, but she’s determined to prove to Jun that she’s a woman, too!
