synopsis of Seishun Buta Yarou Series
One day, in the library where Sakuta Azusagawa studies, he comes across an unexpected sight: a beautiful high school girl dressed as a bunny. She turns out to be Mai Sakurajima, a famous former actress and fellow student at Minegahara High School. However, her surprise at seeing Mai in such a racy outfit in the library is nothing compared to her shocking realization that he is the only one who can see her! Recalling an event from her past, Sakuta offers to help Mai discover the reason for her invisibility. Although their relationship is initially contentious, the two quickly grow closer: Mai and Sakuta grow to appreciate each other and their friendship blossoms into a budding romance.
This makes her determination to solve Mai’s dilemma even greater. As the investigation progresses, Sakuta attributes Mai’s situation to an urban legend known as Adolescence Syndrome: strange phenomena that occur in youth, unexplained by science and often dismissed as delusions. With few promising results, Mai’s situation worsens to the point that not being seen is the least of her worries. Will Sakuta and Mai be able to solve the mystery of her adolescent syndrome before it disappears completely?
