[ Story ]

A film adaptation of a popular comic of the same name by Umino Chika, directed by Takada Masahiro. This is the first feature film he has directed. It is an adolescent drama that realistically portrays real-life worries and friendships of youth, centered around the bittersweet love circumstances of the five characters, all of whom are art college students that have a secret crush on somebody.
Takemoto (Sakurai Sho) is an art college student. He falls in love with Hagumi (Aoi Yu) who is a genius. Morita (Iseya Yusuke), an upperclassman living in the same apartment building, also seems interested in Hagumi. Meanwhile, Mayama (Kase Ryo), Takemoto's senior in the architecture department who also lives in the same apartment building, has an unrequited love for his superior at his part-time job. Yamada (Seki Megumi) of the ceramics department, on the other hand, is in love with Mayama. One day, Hagumi becomes conscious of Morita, and falls into a slump. Takemoto, unable to tell her of his feelings nor assist her, is frustrated with the situation and sets off on a journey by bicycle. Having experienced a wider world, Takemoto matures and confesses his love to Hagumi.
The paintings used in the film as Hagumi's art were created by female artist, MAYA MAXX.
