Yuu Koito, who has trouble understanding how it feels to be in love with someone, was unable to respond to a confession from a boy she was good friends with when she graduated from junior high school.
Then she meets student council officer Touko Nanami, who says that no matter who confesses to her, she can never feel in love with the other person.
Yuu feels sympathy for her and confides her own problems to her, but then she tells Yuu what she didn't expect to hear...
"...I think I'm going to fall in love with you."
