Summary  taken from Baka-Updates
It's about a girl named Hatsune with a "bad mouth", for lack of a better description. She's kind-hearted, but her mouth spews the total opposite of what she means (which is probably due to the fact that she grew up with only male influence). And so she is seen as an arrogant, vulgar girl at her school, but all she wants is a boyfriend. Well, that is, until she gets accepted at the Maidens' Club, where she meets a guy named Kirie, with a somewhat unique habit that happens when a girl comes within a foot of him. And everyone says he's gay, even Hatsune. How will these two fare? Will Hatsune have a boyfriend at last? Will he be more than just a friend?

The summary for this manga isn't accurate at all--the real plot is that Hatsune wants a girlfriend, but has never had a friend in her life because of her big mouth. It's far cuter than the summary makes it sound! Most characters are either already nice, or are jerks that need someone to sooth their injured heart or something, but Hatsune is a nice girl that is a jerk by accident and out of nervousness, which I found endearing. The romance aspect still plays out in a very standard and unimaginative way, but the characters are cute, and that's what makes the manga enjoyable.
