Synopsis for Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!
At the beginning of her first year in college, Hana Uzaki meets Shinichi Sakurai, a senior who was in the same club as her during their high school days. However, to her surprise, the once-active senior has ended up becoming a “lonely” student, who prefers to spend his free time in peace and quiet. Uzaki does everything she can to keep Sakurai from being “alone”, from convincing him to go to the movies to his part-time workplace.
While Sakurai finds her irritating and tiresome, he continues to go along with Uzaki’s pranks and pranks, even if he knows that his cheerful personality will only land the two of them in various comedic situations. Still, as the days go by, their relationship only gets better, to the point where people around them misunderstand them as a couple. In any case, whenever Uzaki wants to hang out with his upperclassman, he’s sure to follow in a crazy fun and adorable way!
