Hiromi Takashima’s Kase-san and… manga began publication in Shinshokan’s Hirari and Flash Wings magazines. The ongoing series currently spans three collected volumes, with the most recent hitting stores in November 2015. Asagao to Kase-san is the first story in the series.
Seven Seas currently holds the domestic rights to Kase-san and…. They describe the series as:
Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don’t seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?
