Is there no happiness without love? Kodama Sakuko has never loved a person, does not understand why people kiss and knows nothing about love or sex. She is unaccustomed to living in a society which assumes that people will fall in love with each other. One day when she visits a supermarket to see a product for a “〇〇 in Love” campaign put together by her junior at work, she encounters by a shop employee Takahashi Satoru who neither wants romance nor sex. He tells her that there are people who do not fall in love and this startles her. Sakuko finds it difficult to live with her parents. With her mother Sakura pressing her to get married, she decides to move out and rent an apartment with her close friend. However, this friend backs out at the last minute after getting back together with an ex-boyfriend, leaving Sakuko nearly broken hearted. She ends up proposing to live with a puzzled Takahashi who agrees as a measure against nosey neighbours that have been bothering him lately. The cohabitation of these two aromantic and asexual people sends ripples through their parents, superiors, neighbours.
