Plot

Kyoko Hori and Izumi Miyamura are two people most couldn’t imagine interacting since Kyoko is popular and introverted at school, while Izumi has traditionally stayed to himself. However, after Izumi’s chance meeting with Kyoko’s little brother Sota, they both discover the person who neither shows at school and find intimacy in having someone see and know their true selves.

Groups & Organizations

Notable Locations & Items

  • Schools In The Area (1.4): There is Katagiri school, where most of the cast go, and then a more elite school called Yasaka.
  • Iori Bakery (1.12): Izumi’s family bakery
  • Which Year Are They In (2.2): They are third years

Other Noteworthy Information

  • Sex (2.10): Though it is never seen, considering Miyamura freaks out when Kyoko notes/jokes her period is late, it might be safe to assume they are having sex.

Kyoko Hori (Haruka Tomatsu)

Popular, one of the top of her class, Hori to her peers seems to be perfect. Some even have a crush on her. However, getting to know her outside of school is difficult due to Hori taking care of her little brother, Sota. Also, between the cooking and cleaning, she is somewhere between enjoying the domestic life and unable to do much to compensate for her father’s absence and mom trying to pay the bills.

Additional Information

  • Introduced In Season 1 Episode 1 “A Tiny Happenstance”
  • Birthday (1.2): March 25th
  • A Singer With No Reference (1.2): Due to mostly hanging out with Sota, Hori isn’t strongly familiar with modern music. Just anime songs from Sota’s viewing habits.
  • Relationship with Mother (1.4): While Hori loves her mother, due to Yoriko often putting work before her kids, even when Hori was younger and sick, it does give her abandonment issues.
