Plot of Story of a Small Senior in My Company
Shinozaki, a Japanese office worker, is the focus of the office romantic comedy manga series. At work, he is coddled and looked after by his senior team member Katase Shiori. Shiori is a petite woman with a fiery temper who doesn’t hold back when Shinozaki needs to be reprimanded for a mistake in his work. Shinozaki, on the other hand, doesn’t mind the scolding because Shiori is also beautiful, kind, and loving. Shinozaki hopes that all of Shiori’s extra attention is because she secretly likes him, but that could be wishful thinking on his part. Shinozaki thinks it’s almost worse when she’s nice to him.
They started complaining about their stiff shoulders and how they’d like a massage one day. Shinozaki considered massaging Shiori but realised that the cute noises she’d make would drive him insane. When Shiori offered to give Shinozaki a back massage, he was unable to completely escape the situation. Shiori made a point of telling Shinozaki how hard and large his shoulders are as she massaged his back. Is she saying such suggestive things on purpose, or does she have no idea how she makes him feel? Shinozaki is also bothered by Shiori’s “cat-like” demeanour. She’s small and adorable, and even her hair is fluffy? How can a guy resist the allure of patting her adorable head?
