Sasaki and Miyano is a boys love (BL) series starring high school student Yoshikazu Miyano (CV: Soma Saito) and his upperclassman/senpai Shūmei Sasaki (CV: Yusuke Shirai).

Miyano is a shy and easily flustered person who keeps his being a fudanshi (a boy who likes BL manga) a secret. But he accidentally reveals this to Sasaki, who is intrigued by the concept. Sasaki then makes it a habit to borrow BL manga from Miyano, triggering a gradual shift in their relationship.
