All three manga will release on May 1.
The Always be With You manga centers on a girl named Sayo and a boy named Taichi. In their first relationship with each other, they have experienced a dream-like time together. But now the time has come for them to be separated, and become ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend.

M&C! describes First Love Story With You:
It has been three months since Hiina started her junior high school life. While people around her were chatting about love, to the bookworm Hiina, it was not a word present in her dictionary. But suddenly, while in the library, school basketball player and popular guy Kashino asked her out?!
