From MangaHelpers:

Sakuragi Ryo believes there are three different ranks inside the high school hierarchy. The "A" rank consists of the best looking, the smartest, and the most athletic members of the high school. The "B" ranks are the average members, while the "C" ranks tend to be ignored by the rest of the school. Against his own will, Ryo was dragged into the "A" ranks of his middle school, leading a school life he did not choose. Now entering high school, he vows to stay out of the limelight, and cement himself as part of the "B" ranks. He just wants to live a peaceful and uneventful school life.

One evening after school, he runs into a scene of three delinquents surrounding a girl. He was hoping he wouldn't have to intervene, but the girl was in desperate need of help. The girl he just saved happened to be the prettiest girl of his high school, and now she wants to repay him for saving her. Ryo now must take all measures to not attract the attention of the rest of the school to stay in the "B" ranks. [DrCoke]

Cute romance.

It's still early to have a sure opinion about this novel, but so far it looks good. (ch 17)

Contrary to what the user bellow me thinks about the MC, I actually like him.
I find it perfectly normal to desire to avoid being in the spotlight. Not everyone wants to be famous.
Also, it was clear that he said to himself that he would meddle in their affair only if the girl would not have been able to get away by herself.

I think the user bellow me is so frustrated because he compares what the MC did with how he would have done if he had been in his place. Not every one is the same. For some guys being acquainted to a pretty girl is not always worth the trouble following her.

Also, him not noticing "the flags" doesn't mean he is an idiot. It only means he is not delusional.

I mean honestly, if it were you who suddenly got a celebrity's attention, would you be so conceited to think that she is in love with you after you have only seen each other for 5 or so times?
Anyway, the action moves pretty fast...I wonder what is going to happen next. By the way their romance is progressing I'm tempted to wonder what had been 4 books filled with biggrin

MC is a self-centered doofus.

Strike one: contemplating far too long on whether he should help a girl ganged up on by male delinquents despite knowing he can handle them pretty easily, all because he doesn't want to be lumped in with the "popular guys" in his school which would be a "bother" for him.

Strike two: Being a pushover when said girl is backed by her two friends to make him become acquaintances with them when he spent so much damn time hesitating in the strike one event which was far more serious. Girl might get beaten or raped unless you intervene? Hmmm gotta think about this one for a looong while cos it'd really hurt my chances of being a faceless sheep in society. Most populalr girl in school asks for phone number and to hang out despite that resulting in you definitely getting heaps of unwanted attention? Sure here you go. Ffs get your priorities right fool.

Strike three: being a standard shounen blockhead when it comes to romance, mixed with a healthy dose of that self-centeredness of his resulting in hurt/sad feelings of innocent love interest.

Seriously? This is a frustrating novel to read.

EDIT: Aaand a strike now for the main girl and her two friends. Latest chapter has this gem where the three girls drag him over to a group fight:

“Sakuragi-kun, though I don’t know why you won’t help them, I ask you, won’t you save them?”

Amazed at Azusa’s words, Ryou says to her.

“You…just now, are you aware you’re telling me to go pick a fight with six people by myself?”

For once the MC actually calls them on their bullshit, so one brownie point to him. Still a doofus though.

So far the novel has been a fun read (only the prologue and 3 chapters out). The MC is interesting as he is not your run of the mill character. Looking forward to future chapters.

Finding this Manga/Novel

I find it irritating when I read about a manga or light novel on BA and find the description interesting, but no way to satisfy my curousity because I can't find where to read or view it. Is this a real publication or a joke? I can't tell.
