    • Aki Ogasawara is the creative talent behind the popular band “CRUDE PLAY.”He quit the band just before their debut, but continues to write their music. But lately, he’s been disenchanted with the music business and bored with himself.
      On a whim, he starts up a conversation with a total stranger, Riko Koeda, a high school student and a die-hard CRUDE PLAY fan.
      “Do you believe in love at first sight?”
      With no idea who he really is, Riko falls in love with Aki and his song.
      Aki begins dating Riko but keeps his CRUDE PLAY identity a secret…
      But everything changes when, by sheer coincidence, Soichiro Takagi, producer of CRUDE PLAY and female pop diva Mari, discovers Riko and her schoolmates Yuichi Kimijima and Sota Yamazaki playing music on the street, and decides to promote them as a new indie band “MUSH & CO.”
      Riko is a rare, gifted singer with a voice unlike any other.
      Will Aki and Riko’s romance stand a chance in the glamorous world of music?
