Sasaki Sachiko is an editor of literary magazines at Chugakukan. She is in charge of Sarara, a monthly magazine. Called “Iron Lady”, she has earned the respect of her colleagues for her perfectionism, composure and diligence. However, on the day of her wedding, her groom Shungo ran away without any warning. After experiencing this tragedy, Sachiko discovered that delicious food could help her forget her hurt. Several months later, Sachiko seems to have completely returned to her former “Iron Lady” self. However, she is reminded of Shungo again and again by the appearance of two writers – the popular author Himemura Hikaru who has a tendency to wander off and the light novel writer Genius Kuroda who is a social recluse because he loathes people – as well as a new editorial staff Kobayashi Shinichi who cannot read situations. When that happens, Sachiko turns to food. Then Shungo shows up … …
