Hige wo Soru. Soshite Joshikousei wo Hirou. (ひげを剃る。そして女子高生を拾う。, Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took In a High School Runaway), or simply Higehiro (ひげひろ), is the manga adaptation of the romantic comedy light novel series of the same name, written by Shimesaba with art by Imaru Adachi. Since November 2018, it has been serialized in the shounen manga magazine Monthly Shōnen Ace of Kadokawa Shoten. A manga adaptation of the light novel spin-off Each Stories was serialized in ComicWalker and illustrated by Hitomi Baramatsu. The manga is licensed in North America by One Peace Books.

Office worker Yoshida has been crushing on his coworker, Airi Gotou, for five years. Despite finally scoring a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home, only to find a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, needing a place to stay the night, attempts to seduce Yoshida. Despite rejecting her advances, he nevertheless invites her into his apartment.

The next morning, the girl, introducing herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she has run away from Hokkaido all the way to Tokyo. During her six-month spree, she continually traded sexual favors for a roof over her head. Yoshida, however, remains unswayed by her seduction. Instead, he has her do a different kind of work—one that entails washing dishes and doing laundry. And so, a touching relationship between a heartbroken adult and a runaway high school girl begins.
