Haruta Soichi is laid off all of a sudden at the age of 35. Just as he is at his wits end, he is saved by a junior from high school days and goes to work for Tenku Peach Airlines where he starts a new life as a cabin attendant. On the day of his debut, Haruta turns up late for the crew briefing because he was helping someone. The captain Kurosawa Musashi has a stern warning for him, “You’re taken off this flight.” However, Haruta only has a moment to feel dejected. When he opens his locker, a large amount of paper sketches capturing Haruta with all sorts of expressions falls out. Haruta tries to look nonchalant as he searches for the person who has a talent for drawing. But he narrowly misses Kurosawa who has finished his flight, and finds a pen used for sketching on the floor. After that, Haruta happens to run into copilot Naruse Ryu who is having an argument with a female. He hears Naruse say that there is someone else he likes, and gets kissed by Naruse all of a sudden. When Haruta returns to the company dormitory, Haruta tells Shinomiya Kaname, the mechanic who is like a big brother to him, about his day of dramatic events. “I can kiss too,” Shinomiya says with a straight face. Haruta, the unpopular, written-off bachelor who is good-natured, straightforward, kind and a wee bit of a fool, enjoys an unexpected period of popularity. However, they are all male, whether pilot, copilot or mechanic, for some reason! A great captain with exceptional expertise and personality, Kurosawa is strict about work and keen in mentoring his juniors. In the course of the flights with Haruta, Kurosawa sees his passion and the efforts he makes for passengers, and gradually acknowledges him. And at some point, this turns into love.

He is strict with himself and others, and because he does not mince his words, he tends to get into trouble with people. He is matter-of-fact, unsociable and does not show his personal side. That is why he detests Haruta Soichi’s type, who just barges into people’s heart, the most. In his personal life, he is rather idle.
