    • Synopsis
    • 17 year old girl Shiori is an aspiring model. She is an inspiration for her 12-year-old fan Ayumi, who's just run away from home. Shiori is busy broadcasting herself on TwitCasting, a selfie online video distributing website. She’s on Twitter too, of course. Shiori warms up to Ayumi, getting to know that her shy and young fan was always rooting for her. But one day, she introduces Ayumi to her live-in boyfriend Kawashima, never expecting Ayumi would start living with them. Kawashima thinks he is acting the hero, and Shiori decides to leave the apartment, unable to tell him her feelings. With nowhere to go, Shiori takes shelter in the private booth of a “manga café,” where she spends her time nursing mixed feelings. There, she starts searching up on Ayumi, and finds that Ayumi has a blog, not only dedicated to Shiori but also identical in design to Shiori's own blog. Seeing Ayumi's untainted devotion for her, Shiori starts to develop a confusing crush on her, but can’t tell if it’s love. Eventually, when she visits Kawashima’s apartment again and sees through his male egotism, Shiori saves Ayumi and beats up Kawashima together. A relationship starts for the two girls, but it’s not friendship nor a love affair. Their feelings for each other seem to surpass everything like age and sex. Even after Ayumi's mom comes and takes her away, they keep reaffirming their love for each other on a smartphone chat app. But then, Ayumi’s mom takes away her iPhone, and they lose all means of communication…
