Story
Mitari Yo is a career woman who works for a shoe maker. She finds her work rewarding and has successfully advanced in her career. But she keeps having her heart broken and her romantic life has not gone very well lately. Ishida Ren works for a developer and is Yo’s best friend. An ex-classmate from both high school and university days, he understands her the best and is the only person she pours her heart out to. On Yo’s 29th birthday, the two friends place a wager to give 300,000 yen as a congratulatory gift to the one who is the first to get married by the last day they are 30. Yo begins looking for a husband through a online dating app. However, the people she meets are all even though they are not bad. A friend tells her about a shrine that will give her better luck in love. She goes there with Ren and they have a good time. Although they declare that it is impossible for them to fall in love with each other, this wager as well as advances by Kawano Maki, Ren’s junior in the company and Yo’s reunion with her ex-boyfriend Mizusawa Ryusei lead to gradual changes in the relationship of these two best friends.
