Few things can harm people more in their adolescence than the heartaches that come with unrequited love.

There he meets Rui, a girl who shares his lack of excitement. Rui invites Natsuo to her house for an intimate evening, thinking that the experience will prevent her friends from treating her like a clueless child. Natsuo reluctantly agrees, his hopeless love for Hina still fresh in his thoughts.
