Wataru Sajou, who is deeply in love with his beautiful classmate Aika Natsukawa, approaches her relentlessly while dreaming of their love for each other. However, one day he woke up thinking, “I’m not really fit to be together with someone as good as her, huh…” Realizing this, Wataru began to keep a proper distance from her, much to Aika’s surprise. “Could it be that she now hates me…?”
Did he slip out of his intentions because he was getting impatient after coming to the wrong conclusion?! This is the beginning of a romantic comedy that revolves around two people who fail to convey their feelings and both think that their love is unrequited.
