Story
Chigasaki Misa is a career woman who works for a smartphone game start-up. She develops love game apps, but ironically the longest she has ever been in love is just two months because she loves her work. Misa wants to be the company president and has been struggling to create a hit game. The opportunity finally presents itself. However, at the decisive moment, she ends up losing the role due to the sudden appearance of the all too perfect Oshima Keisuke, a professional executive who has returned from New York. He is the very man whom she met while jogging in the park one morning and whose advances left her perplexed. Meanwhile, Misa’s good friend Enokida Chihiro, who is living with her, gets a proposal from her boyfriend of four years. However, like Misa, that joy is fleeting. Chihiro catches her boyfriend two-timing her right after that. Then Hashimoto Tsukasa appears before her stating that for a woman, her body is enough. All four men and women are bad at love and don’t know what comes next after liking someone.
