Kodansha USA Publishing is publishing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Hime is a picture-perfect high school princess—she's admired by all and never trips up! So when she accidentally injures a café manager named Mai, she's willing to cover some shifts to keep her facade intact. To Hime's surprise, the café is themed after a private school where the all-female staff always puts on their best act for their loyal customers. However, under the guidance of the most graceful girl there, Hime can't help but blush and blunder! Beneath all the frills and laughter, Hime feels tension brewing as she finds out more about her new job and her budding feelings …
The manga was first published by Miman in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine in November 2016, and the eleventh volume was released in Japan by Ichijinsha in November 2022. On June 13, Kodansha USA Publishing will make the eleventh volume available in English.
