Senpai is an Otokonoko based on aweb manga

The romantic comedy anime Senpai is an Otokonoko is based on web manga Otokonoko ga Kouhai ni Kokuhaku sareru Hanashi (おとこのこが後輩に告白される話), which was originally published by the author on Twitter and via Pixiv.

The manga was eventually picked up by WEBTOON, which is where English-speaking manga fans can currently read it — although wouldn’t it be nice if a paperback edition came out soon?

WEBTOON describes the Senpai is an Otokonoko plot like this:

Can true love really overcome any obstacles? Saki, a high school student, confesses her feelings to Makoto. Taken aback, Makoto reveals his secret, but the sudden discovery doesn’t seem to bother Saki who is already head over heels for him.

After being rejected, Saki asks Ryuji, Makoto’s childhood friend, for some advice on how to win his heart. A love triangle unfolds when Ryuji realizes that he might also have some feelings for his old friend.
