    • Ninako Kinoshita (Kasumi Arimura) has never been in love before. She meets Ren Ichinose (Sota Fukushi) , the most popular boy in school, on her train ride home. As they get to know each other, Ninako gradually discovers that despite his cool demeanor, Ren’s words, actions and smile are full of warmth and she finds herself falling in love for the first time. But Ren has an older girlfriend Mayuka (Arisa Sato) who he has been seeing since middle school…
      Despite knowing of Ren’s relationship, Ninako wants to tell him how she feels and confesses her love, but Ren rejects her.
      Ren has always felt a little insecure with his older girlfriend, Mayuka, who is growing up faster than he is. His feelings begin to change as he becomes accustomed to Ninako’s straightforward honesty. Ninako is resigned to the fact that she and Ren can never be more than “friends”, but she can’t stop her feelings from growing stronger every day. Meanwhile, another classmate, Ando (Yuki Yamada) is drawn to Ninako, despite knowing that she is in love with his friend, Ren. Daiki (Jingi Irie) also falls for Ninako, but he is turned away. And then there’s Ando’s “ex” Mao (Yuina Kuroshima)… Feelings of unrequited love intersect and begin to gather momentum.
