Volume Synopsis:
Kobato-kun and Osanai-san are in their first year of high school. Though they neither love nor rely on each other, the two of them have a peculiar, mutually-beneficial relationship. Today, like every other day, they only wish to be modest, upstanding lower-middle class citizens, or as they call it, petit bourgeois. And yet, they still manage to constantly find themselves face-to-face with strange mysteries around every corner. Although he doesn’t want to stand out as some sort of genius detective, Kobato-kun somehow always ends up finding himself trapped in situations that force him to unravel these mysteries anyways. Will he ever be able to become his ideal petit bourgeois?
