Toshihiko a.k.a “Toshy” practices English by watching streams of Western shows in secret. He feels even more motivated to improve when his English teacher, Mr. Fujii, praises him on his English pronunciation. Years later, in a different setting, the two are fatefully reunited. The circumstances are different now as Toshy reveals that he’s always carried a torch for Mr. Fujii. Can he win the race of love and more? Racers, start your engines.

The digital release of Until We’re Together will be released in February 2023 and is currently available for pre-order on the Irodori Sakura website. The 87-page-long volume is priced at $12.25. The work will be made available on other digital platforms at a later date as well.
