VIZ Media licensed the series in English and described the series as:
All Fuuko wants is a passionate romance like the one in her favorite shojo manga. Unfortunately, her capacity for misfortune makes this impossible. But just as Fuuko hits rock bottom, Andy sweeps her off her feet—literally! She has now become Andy’s unwilling test subject as he works to find a way to give Misfortune a stroke large enough to kill him for good. However, when the couple discover that a secret organization is after them, it postpones Andy’s funeral plans.
