Four volumes of the series have shipped to stores to date, with the most recent hitting stores on November 10, 2018.

Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:

One day out of boredom, Tanaka decided to give her classmates nicknames based on their quirks. Her friend Sakuchi became “Ota” for her nerdy interests, and her other friend Saginomiya became “Robo” because of her expressionless personality. In retaliation, her friends decided to name Tanaka “Baka”. These are the ridiculous days of three high school friends claiming (or not) the height of their youth.
