Waka Kakitsubata ‘s Akkun to Kanojo launched in the pages of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Gene in June 2013. The series boasts over 480,000 books in print. In addition to the print sources, the title is available on Pixiv.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:
The romantic comedy follows the everyday life of an extremely tsundere (initially aloof and abrasive, but later kind-hearted) boy named Atsuhiro “Akkun” Kagari and his girlfriend Non “Nontan” Katagiri. Akkun’s behavior is harsh towards Nontan with verbal abuse and neglect, but he actually is head-over-heels for her and habitually acts like a stalker by tailing her or eavesdropping. Nontan is oblivious to Akkun’s stalker ways, and thinks his actions are cute.
