    • Synopsis
    • Futaba (Tsubasa Honda) and Ko (Masahiro Higashide) used to like each other in the 7th grade but had been separated and gone their different ways. They are reunited in the spring of their sophomore year in high school, but Futaba is perplexed by the way Ko seems to have become a different person in some respects. But underneath the cold words and actions, it turns out that he is still the same kindhearted young man he used to be, and Futaba can't help but fall in love with him again.
      The other characters in the story include their classmates who become their friends: Shuuko (Yua Shinkawa), Kominato (Ryo Yoshizawa), and Yuuri (Izumi Fujimoto). Toma (Yudai Chiba) becomes attracted to Futaba. Then there's Yui (Mitsuki Takahata), who gets in the way of Futaba and Ko's relationship.
      The secret that Ko carries from the four years he was gone is gradually brought to light. As they struggle in the face of the helplessness that youth entails, Futaba and Ko's romance begins to move forward once again.
