Story
Sakamoto Marin has been captivated by ships ever since she saw a luxury cruise liner when she was an elementary school student, and wants to sail one herself. To fulfil her dream of being a navigator, Marin has enrolled as a first-year student at Kanto Maritime University. This is how she meets Ishikawa Tsubame on the day of their university’s joint practical training with Kobe Kainan University. Tsubame once failed the university entrance exams as a result of some circumstances before she was admitted to Kanto Maritime University. But she quickly regrets it and participates with a heavy heart since this is not what she wanted. Marin cannot read situations and has a very spontaneous nature. This frequently causes trouble even though she never loses heart no matter how she gets scolded. Tsubame easily gets carried away by moods and is often regretful afterwards. The two girls with completely different personalities and mindsets have to spend one month in the same group and same room for the practical training aboard a vessel for their first test as freshmen in an environment where 80% are boys. Tsubame begins to get influenced by Marin despite being at the mercy of the uproar which Marin creates from the very first day. They have to cope with the gruelling training, unimaginable seasickness and conflicts with male students Yagi Yamato, Narumi Arata, Kogure Kensuke and Yamada Shotaro.
