But in a world where boys are expected to act manly, Asuka must hide his beloved hobbies and play the part of a masculine jock instead. Can Asuka ever show his true self to anyone, much less to Ryo Miyakozuka, the girl that he's falling for? Ryo's grandfather becomes ill, so she decides to move to Fukuoka to take care of him.
