Girlfriend, Girlfriend is a story about Naoya Mukai, who has been in love with Saki Saki for a long time. She finally accepted his confession after multiple times, much to Naoya’s happiness. Saki became his girlfriend, so Naoya showered her with lots of affection. As a couple, they were often pit against each other like ice and fire, but they undoubtedly love each other very much. Until one day, a girl named Nagisa Minase confessed her love to Naoya. Naoya rejected her politely at first, but he eventually found Nagisa to be very charming and irresistible. She is very sweet, cute, and even made lunch for him. Naoya then got a crazy idea – he would date Saki and Nagisa simultaneously. He decided to ask Saki for permission… would she even agree?
