Kitayama Chika and Satoru are a newly married young couple and have moved into their new home. He is an assistant to a veteran manga artist Nomura Manbou while she is an apparel sales personnel on a contract. They are not well-off but they love each other and are happy. One day, Satoru starts to feel that something is not quite right. Chika made a promise to go out but does not remember it. Then he found an egg in a bathroom towel. She also immediately got sidetracked even though they had been talking. That said, it has not been to the extent that is concerning. However, the situation changes significantly when Chika gets fired and finds it troubling that she cannot do her job well. She learns from test results that she has a developmental disorder. Wanting to find out more about her disorder after hearing this diagnosis, Chika visits Miyanomori Kaede, who has become her doctor. Shaken by the news, Satoru tries to support his wife after consulting his teacher Manbou and senior Satake Manabu. But he discovers that this is not what Chika wishes for and they end up at odds with each other in their daily lives. At Manbou Manga Studio, Manbou submits his manuscript ahead of the deadline in a rare move and proposes to celebrate its completion with everyone. This results in Manbou, Satake and Satoru’s two other colleagues Yumi and Takahiro suddenly showing up at the Kitayama residence uninvited. Amid the jumble of happiness and awkwardness, Manbou lets slip that he heard about Chika’s developmental disorder from Satoru … …
