Plot Concept: Sakuta Azusagawa is a second-year high school student living in “Fujisawa”, where the sky and sea shines. The exciting everyday life with his upperclassman and girlfriend, Mai Sakurajima, takes a turn at the appearance of his first love, Shoko Makinohara. For some reason, “two versions” of Shoko exists—a junior high student and an adult. Sakuta is made a fool by “Adult Shoko” as he somehow but reluctantly ends up living with her. His relationship with Mai becomes strained. Meanwhile, Sakuta learns that “Junior High Shoko” is diagnosed with a serious illness and his scar starts to hurt again.
