The English language version of the Hirano and Kagiura light novel is now out via Yen Press.


The novel is written by Sasaki and Miyano mangaka Shō Harusono, and is beautifully illustrated throughout by Kotoko Hachijō.

The Sasaki and Miyano spinoff is a standalone volume that began publishing on February 21st, 2023.

The book itself is 160 pages long, with a reading age level for those who are 13 years olds on up.

Yen Press gives a rundown of the Hirano & Kagiura plot like this:

Basketball players. Bad boys who aren’t really bad boys. Roommates. Senpai-kouhai BL romance.

It all started when Kagiura moved into the school dorms with what seemed to be a bad boy upperclassman. But after he’s left in the tender care of his mother-hen of a roommate, Hirano, it’s too much to ask for Kagiura not to fall in love…right?! 
From the author of Sasaki and Miyano comes the Hirano & Kagiura novel and its manga sequel, filled with answers to the questions Mya-chan never knew.

Do they like-like each other? Are they dating? What juicy things do they get up to behind closed doors?! 

In other words, if you fell in love with Hirano and Kagiura while watching the Sasaki and Miyano anime series, or while reading the manga, and are desperate to find out if they end up together, this is the book to read.

The English language version of the Hirano & Kagiura light novel is now available via Yen Press.

It comes in both digital and trade paperback versions.

The manga adaptation of the story is also available at Yen Press, with two volumes now out and a third due to publish in July.
