The anime adjustment debuted on Fuji TV’s Noitamina programming square last July.

Crunchyroll streamed the series as it broadcast, and it portrays the story:

Somehow, the guitar that he used to love to play and the basketball games that he found so fun just lost their appeal…

That was until Ritsuka Uenoyama randomly met Mafuyu Sato. Ritsuka had started losing his passion for music in his everyday life, but then he hears Mafuyu sing for the first time. The song resonates with his heart and the distance between them starts to change.
