Story
Fujiwara Hana and Katayama Mizuki have been best friends since elementary school. When Hana gets dumped by her boyfriend who was cheating on her, Hana and Mizuki take a trip together to relieve her heartbreak. They meet two guys – Narita Yosuke and Ichinose Ayumu – at a hot spring inn at their destination. Although they have only just become acquainted, Yosuke suddenly starts to lecture Hana when he notices that she does not say what she wants. Hana uncharacteristically explodes after he points out her flaw and walks off. Several days later, Mizuki calls Hana, asking to meet Yosuke again. Hana has just started on a new project in her role in product development. Although she is tired from working all through the night, she is unable to turn Mizuki down when she shows up outside her office and drags her to meet Yosuke and Ayumu … … Hana starts to realise that her inability to speak out because she is too mindful of others is a shortcoming and tries to change. On the other hand, Mizuki, who has never dated seriously before, wants to be loved. Yosuke is despised for saying things that he thinks are for the other person’s sake while Ayumu is a mixture of kindness and frivolousness. Then there is Ayumu’s “younger brother” Kanata. Friendship, jealousy, betrayal and quarrels swirl in each of them. They start to come to terms with themselves through love.
