Story
24-year-old Yamazaki Makoto’s dream is to be a pilot. But he has had anthropophobia for seven years and is confined to his home. He has also not been able to take the entrance examination for aviation college and has just reached the age limit. Makoto enjoys playing flight simulation games all through night with his gaming buddies. One day, he hears his mother talk about a pilot who has the same name and surname and when he looks it up online, he comes upon the blog of Yamazaki Makoto which has a photograph of a cute girl. Pretending to be a pilot, he sends her an email. She replies that she suffers from anthropophobia too but easily overcame it after she was advised to go outside. Motivated by her, Makoto eventually succeeds in buying a newspaper outside and comes home to an unexpected situation – a film crew from an amateur reality programme. Realising that he has been fooled, he panics. Makoto denies involvement when he sends her an angry email and wants to meet him and say a word of thanks. He goes to their meeting place feeling wary of another candid camera incident and is surprised to see a stunningly beautiful girl Yamazaki Makoto, who looks different from the photograph, show up … …
