Miyuki Kobayashi has just moved to Tokyo from Osaka to start her career as a manga-ka for the shoujo magazine Pink Ribbon. Armed with only minimal knowledge of how the world works outside the bubble her rich CEO parents kept her in growing up, she’s determined to step out of her comfort zone and use the opportunity to find out who she is- though she has to keep her manga successful, too.

Just as she’s making friends and connections, she meets Yuki. Yuki is a writer for Blue Bow, their publisher’s BL imprint. He’s quiet and polite, and something about him just makes Miyuki feel like he’s keeping an enormous amount of hurt under the surface. Between the demands of her new career and constant and vicious office rumors, can Miyuki have a perfect shoujo love, or is reality harsher than the one she creates every month?
