Synopsis for Yofukashi no Uta

Kou Yamori looks like your typical high school student on the surface. Relatively good at studies and kind to his classmates, he tries very hard to maintain this facade. One day, however, he decides to stop pretending and drops out of school, developing insomnia as a result of not having a daytime outlet for his energy. When he goes out for a walk alone at night, he feels slightly better, although he is aware that his inability to sleep should be considered a serious problem.

On one of those walks, Kou meets a strange girl, Nazuna Nanakusa, who diagnoses him with the cause of his insomnia: despite having made changes in his life, it keeps preventing him from experiencing true freedom. She tells him that he won’t be able to sleep if he isn’t satisfied with the way he spends his waking hours. When it seems that he has resolved his current concerns, Nazuna invites him to her apartment to share her futon. After a while, unaware that he is only pretending to be unconscious, she leans over him and bites his neck.
