After Taichi agreed to be Kohei’s class notetaker, the two became close (possibly more than?) friends, but a misunderstanding during spring break has split them apart. When Taichi finally sees Kohei again, he is mentoring Maya, another student with a hearing impairment, and for some unknown reason, she does everything she can to keep Taichi away from them. Confused by his feelings for Kohei and feeling like he doesn’t belong at school, Taichi struggles to understand his place in world. When he is given the opportunity to work at a company that provides services to people who are deaf, he has to decide whether it is worth it to lose Kohei forever in order to try to make the world an easier place to live in for people like Kohei and Maya.
