Summary: 19-year-old Roji Shizuru has a crush on a fellow university student, Nana, but there always seems to be complications when he tries to get closer to her. For one thing, heâ€™s afraid his hot friend Tachibana Masaki will steal her. Beyond that, the main complication comes from the interference of children, specifically one odd child called Maida Kokoro, who keeps clinging to Shizuru and calling him “mama”.
Note 1: The series has been on indefinite hiatus in Japan since September 2017. I will continue to check the publisher’s website regularly and if they start putting out new chapters, I will pick up the scanlation again. For those who might be considering whether to try this series out or not, it is pretty episodic and comes to a fairly natural stopping point, so you’re not left with a cliffhanger or anything.
Note 2: Some web-only content has been released during hiatus and has been added as “extras” below. I will continue to scanlate any further content that is released.
