1 - This Love... Is Being Turned Into a Shojo Manga 92014-07-07Chiyo Sakura, age 16, tells her crush Umetaro Nozaki that she is his fan, but he responds by giving her his autograph. She then says she wants to be with him always, so Nozaki invites her home and gives her some "beta work", which after several hours, she realizes she is doing inking for him. She realizes he is a shojo manga artist who is published in a magazine she has bought. Later, they think of romance ideas such as making a guy a delinquent but should obey the laws, and taking a girl home with a bicycle. Nozaki invites Sakura home but he has a tandem bicycle, so they see if any of the situations are conducive to romance.

Sakura learns that Mikoshiba's artistic specialty is adding background decorations such as flowers, and she discovers that Mikoshiba is Nozaki's model for the heroine of his manga. Nozaki later asks Sakura if she has any friends who might fit in a shojo manga. Sakura introduces them to Yuzuki Seo, a girl who the guys discover has a habit of being insensitive and oblivious (not reading the atmosphere). However, she has an angelic singing voice, of which she is nicknamed the Glee Club's Lorelei.

She is a member of the acting club and is really popular among the girls. However, she is a bit dense and acts idiotic sometimes that her senior at acting club Masayuki Hori will scold and even physically beat her. After helping Hori paint some sets, Sakura discovers that he is the one who does backgrounds for Nozaki's manga. When Mashima sees Hori with Nozaki, she gets a bit jealous.

4 - There Are Times When Men Must Fight 92014-07-28Mikoshiba asks Nozaki if he can stay over in order to seek his advice regarding girls, however the "girls" turn out to be heroines of a dating simulation game. As they try out the game, they realize that the protagonist's best friend, Tomoda, has been caring for him throughout his adventures, which prompts Nozaki to make a story about their friendship, which appears to Sakura to be a Boy's Love-genre story.

When Ken tells Nozaki that the heroine of the manga should express more feelings, Nozaki pretends to act like the heroine for the day by giving lunches to his friends and carting Kashima away from a mob of livid girls.
