Back in her junior high school days, she fell in love with Hirako Kaede (Jin Suzuki). The two dated, but the love story ended in sadness. She was brokenhearted for years. But now she hopes for a fresh start – and a brand new love story. She also has the support of her best friend, a young man named Yamashita Kazuha (Yoshida Jinto).

He has become mature and cosmopolitan – while still remaining every bit as handsome as he once was!
