    • “I want to change for you.”
      “I want to discover a different side of myself for you.”
      A heartwarming story featuring complete opposites -- a blond-haired hottie and a shy, studious girl. This is a story of positivity and being true to yourself in a time when even a typical student life can’t be taken for granted, reminding us that each moment is precious and irretrievable.
      In middle school, the shy and reserved Uka Ishimori was bullied and nicknamed “Stone.” Determined to reinvent herself, she opts for a more liberal high school. There, she meets Kai Miura, a boy with lemon-colored hair. Kai is actually the reason she chose this school.
      The popular and carefree Kai seems indifferent to everything. No one knows what he’s thinking, but for some reason, he’s taken it upon himself to look after Uka, calling himself “her guardian.” They grow closer as Uka’s attraction to Kai deepens and Kai is drawn to her earnestness. He’s experiencing feelings he’s never had before. But Kai is harboring a secret…
      As they grapple with love and friendship, the lives of Kai, Uka and their friends begin to change and take flight!
