TOMOMITSU Tamao is what you’d call a “gyaru (gal),” a fashionable Tokyoite who frequents tanning salons and who’s particular about her nail art and makeup.

Though hesitant at first, YAMADA comes to care for the straight-shooting and sincere Tamao in this fast and furious depiction of a love story between two very different people.
