A synopsis of the series was provided by Weekly Shonen Magazine and translated as follows (from ANN):

Sumire Suō is 15 years old. She has passion for football, but can’t seem to grasp victory… After having a gloomy life as a middle school student, will a single moment as a high school student make her heart dance!?

A description of the first chapter is provided by ANN:

The first chapter of the manga begins with Sumire in middle school. The short-haired girl shows overwhelming power at a soccer game, and makes a great shot from a dribble during a counter, but the match ends when a girl with pigtails named Midori Soshizaki her. The two end up going to a regular high school instead of one that prides itself in athletics, and decide to work together as a team.

Farewell, My Dear Cramer’s first chapter is currently available on Kindle and Comixology. The chapter costs $1.99 at both digital outlets.

    That’s interesting. It implies that there is a good market for manga in the West. Hopefully this will start a trend.

      I’m glad the western comic industry’s willingly destroying the western comic book market with censorship commission just so they could have a monopoly is coming back to bite them in the ass.
