1. Spring Time


Banri Tada, a freshman law student at a Tokyo university ended up arriving late for his entrance ceremony. Not knowing how to get to the university, he discreetly followed two other students, and meets Mitsuo Yanagisawa, another freshman, who quickly befriended him. As they made their way to their orientation, they were greeted by a beautiful young woman, who presented Mitsuo with a bouquet of roses and then proceeded to smack him with them before leaving. Mitsuo later explained that the woman was Kouko Kaga, his childhood friend, and arranged fiancé, whom he had run away from as he does not reciprocate her feelings. After orientation, Banri and Mitsuo learn that Kouko was also a student at their university, much to Mitsuo's horror. She became acquainted with Banri during a shared class, and he soon became smitten. After class, Banri met and befriended freshman Chinami Oka and Linda, a second year student and member of the Japanese Festival Culture Research Club. On his way home, he once again runs into Kouko, who used his phone to locate Mitsuo, but upon returning it, he noticed the phone number for a hospital, causing him to remember a time when he was on a bridge and was seemingly run over by a motorbike.

2. Lonely Girl


Banri has a dream of himself, apparently injured, fleeing from a hospital, but upon awakening cannot remember any more than that. Arriving at the university gate, he meets Kouko, who is waiting for Mitsuo, and the two talk some more. He notices that Kouko seems lonely without Mitsuo. Later that night, he tells Mitsuo about Kouko, but Mitsuo brushes it off, saying Kouko is just acting to get Banri to bring her to him. To brighten the mood, Mitsuo invites Banri to the Film Club's welcoming party, where club member Chinami got Mitsuo to join. The party was soon crashed however by the Tea Club's party, who drag Banri off to join in their festivities. He meets a new friend Takaya Satō, nicknamed Nijigen. The next day, Banri notices that Kouko has still not made any friends, and encourages her to join a club. Another student overhears them and invites the two to a café to tell them about her club, which lasts until dark. She invites them on her club's overnight trip to see if they would be willing to join. Still wanting to help Kouko, Banri decides to accompany Kouko when she agrees to go. (Source: Wikipedia)

3. Night Escape


On the day of the scheduled club trip, Banri meets with Kōko and Nijigen, who is also invited. When the club members arrives to pick up the attendants, Banri becomes suspicious of them when he notices they all wear a similar pendant, and more so when they bring the group to a remote location. The club then reveals itself as a cult who wishes for Banri's group to join them. Banri convinces them to let the others go, when he tells them that he suffered an accident after high school that gave him amnesia of everything from before starting college, and that they could help him. As the others leave, Kōko decides to stay with Banri, and the two ultimately escape and hide in the woods. As they hide, Banri and Kōko bond by getting to know more about one another. Kōko reveals she was actually a nice person, and only acts stuck up around Mitsuo due to her feelings for him, while also confessing that she really was just using her friendship with Banri to get closer to Mitsuo. Banri in turn reveals that his story about having amnesia was not a lie, and that he feels that his family and friends want the current him to disappear and have the old him return. While he sympathizes with their wishes, he does not want to lose his current self. When the pair hear the cult members looking for them, they flee further into the woods, until they are found by Linda. (Source: Wikipedia)

After Linda finds them, she explains that she was out on a club retreat with the Festival Club, and brings Banri and Kōko to their campsite. After returning, Banri is greeted by Nijigen, Mitsuo, and Chinami, who are all relieved to know they are alright. Later during a break, Banri, Mitsuo, and Chinami get together to talk, but they are interrupted by Kōko, who begins to berate and belittle Chinami, causing Mitsuo to leave with Chinami and leaving Banri to comfort a remorseful Kōko. After class, the pair once again encounters Linda, who invites them to participate in one of the Festival Club's dance rehearsals. Banri decides to join, while Kōko considers the idea. Later that night, Mitsuo tells Banri he will settle things with Kōko, because he wants to pursue a relationship with Chinami, and the next day Mitsuo flatly rebuffs Kōko's affection in front of Banri. Kōko asks Mitsuo if their time together meant nothing to him, and Mitsuo replies that while he treasures their time together, he only sees her as a childhood friend. Kōko angrily yells at him to forget their history, driving Mitsuo away. Kōko yells at him to disappear, but realizes her words are hurtful to Banri, causing her to continuously apologize in tears. After a few hours, Kōko and Banri are invited by a girl called Nana (most likely a reference to Nana Osaki from the manga and anime NANA) to her concert. Kōko goes to vent her frustration, but is thrown out, and spends the night at Banri's apartment. Kōko reveals she needs him, while Banri confesses his love for her. After she leaves, she texts Banri, encouraging him to not forget about his lost memories, which motivates him to return to his home in Shizuoka, where he finds a scrapbook containing pictures of himself and Linda in high school together.

5. Body and Soul


After finding the photo of him and Linda, Banri runs to the bridge where the accident that caused his amnesia occurred to remember more, but cannot.

After returning to school, Banri meets Kōko, who gives him a mirror that matches hers to commemorate their friendship. The next day, Banri and Mitsuo run into Kōko, who begins to act overly cheerful and dramatic about her friendship with Banri. Linda, who is helping Kōko register for classes, soon joins them and meets Mitsuo, while later inquiring about Kōko and Banri's joining the Festival Club. Kōko answers that both of them will join, while Banri wonders why Linda has not mentioned that she knows him from before. At their first dance rehearsal, Kōko demonstrates she cannot dance, which causes her to be depressed and cry. After calming down, she apologizes to Banri for her behavior, and confesses that she is still recovering from being dumped by Mitsuo, but he reassures her it is fine, and reaffirms their friendship by using the mirror she gave him. That night, Banri recalls the memory from when he escaped the hospital; he had seen a flashing light from his window, and when he snuck out to see what it was, he discovered it was Linda. As the two talk, she reveals that she was the one who inspired Banri to come to Tokyo. Banri wonders why Linda has not mentioned any of this to him, and the spirit of Banri laments that he cannot tell the current Banri how important Linda was to him. (Source: Wikipedia)

Chinami finds the two and invites them to a party, but Kōko declines out of dislike for Chinami, but this does not dissuade Chinami, who explains to Banri that she likes Kōko. Banri convinces Kōko to attend, alongside Mitsuo and Nijigen, but Kōko and Mitsuo end up arguing about Chinami, which ends with Mitsuo confessing to Chinami, and her turning him down. On their way home, Banri decides to end his friendship with Kōko, due to her lasting infatuation for Mitsuo, and despite Kōko's objections, he leaves her. The next day, Linda notices the tense atmosphere between the two, but when she inquires about it, Banri confronts her about not telling him that they previously knew each other. Linda explains that she said nothing out of fear of confusing him and driving him away, while also admitting her guilt in feeling that she had caused Banri's accident by not responding to his confession sooner. Afterwards, Kōko meets up with Banri to learn what happened, but he takes off running due to the revelation that Linda might have reciprocated his feelings years ago, and how her answer would have affected his life.

She tries to run to the restroom, but Linda points out that she's been there about thirty times, and that her urge to urinate is a result of her nervous condition. The festival is about to start, so the other club members start to abandon Kōko where she sits. Linda then suggests they teach the first years about "that".

She wonders if Banri is trying to find himself and if he does so if will he leave her.
