Story

Do you fall in love to forget?
Or forget so you can fall in love again?

High school...a time when young girls fall in love for the first time...
So the story goes for Nanami Takahashi (Yuriko Yoshitaka), a sophomore who falls for classmate Motoharu Yano (Toma Ikuta) who has two thirds of the girls in the class pursuing him. Yet Yano’s soul is warped and his heart is dark...Nanami wants more than anything to help Yano overcome his past and begin healing...

Overcoming many difficulties together, Nanami and Yano's relationship becomes closer and closer. Amidst adversity, Nanami and Yano's feelings for each other gradually deepen, while Yano's best friend Masafumi Takeuchi (Sosuke Takaoka) watches protectively over Nanami. But Yuri Yamamoto's (Yuika Motokariya) (younger sister of Yano's ex, Nana) secret feelings for Yano complicate the fragile balance of relationships... The love story follows the four characters from their teens to young adulthood.
What is the destiny of the four's romance?
