    • Synopsis
    •  Ever since he was little, the handsome Towa Furuya (Taishi Nakagawa) has been surrounded and adored by girls. Their attention has convinced him he is irresistible to females, but in actual fact, he has never had a girlfriend and has zero experience with the opposite sex, which of course means he is also a virgin...
       One day, a classmate who has a girlfriend tells Towa, “Face it, you’re for ‘ornamental use only’!” Thinking that his good looks mean getting himself a girlfriend will be a piece of cake, he loudly makes a vow: “I’m gonna get a girlfriend!”
       He sets his sights on the most popular girl in his year at school, the beautiful but unyielding Misono Miwa, who has turned down every boy who has asked her out. Towa proposes to Misono with overflowing confidence, but she rejects him instantly, calling his proposal “crummy”! He never imagined he would be unsuccessful, and can’t accept the reality of his situation, which only motivates him even more. Undaunted, he continues to ask her out, but is shot down every time...
       However, the more Towa persists with his pursuit of Misono, the more he becomes aware of her kindness and good nature, which makes him fall in love with her for real. Then he comes to a shocking realization: she only has eyes for her art teacher, Ryuji Masaki...
       A handsome young man comes to terms with being a loser, and does everything he can to win the heart of the only girl he has ever fallen in love with. Will he be able to overcome his inadequacies, and finally get himself a girlfriend?!
