Up to the age 30, Sho Arai lived as a woman, but was found to be an intersex after chromosome testing. Sho now regards S as being neither a man nor a woman, and creates essay manga based on the changes S's body has undergone.

They met 10 years ago at a vocational school where S teaches manga. Koh has himself debuted as a manga artist and come out publicly as a gay.
