Tooru’s got a secret–a secret journal, to be exact. Thanks to his overactive imagination, he’s been committing silly stories to paper since, well, forever. Yes, the scenarios he dreams up are cringeworthy, and yes, he fixates on them too much at the expense of his love life. But then, who would ever date someone with such a twisted hobby… right? Wrong! One day, after accidentally leaving it on campus, he rushes back only to catch his classmate Chikage reading it with intense interest.
“So this wonderful journal belongs to you? If that’s the case, I have an idea…”
As luck would have it, Chikage happens to be a published manga artist who’s hit a creative slump. Hoping to gain inspiration from Tooru’s fiction, she makes him an offer that’s hard to refuse.
“Share your journal with me, and I’ll make it up to you, I swear it!”
It’s a tempting proposition to be sure, but more than that, Tooru is surprised to learn that he just might have the chops to become a writer. The first to notice this newfound pep in Tooru’s step is his close friend, Nao. But instead of being happy for him, she becomes wild with jealousy!
“Chikage’s gonna take my Tooru away!”
And as if that wasn’t enough, Tooru’s childhood friend Rino, who sees him as the ultimate big brother, moves in to add more chaos to the mix.
“Big bro, I missed you sooo much! C’mon already, we have to catch up!”
Surrounded left, right, and center by jealous classmates vying for his time, Tooru finds himself in the middle of an anime plot! That’s right, Tooru’s real-life anime situation is about as ridiculously real as it gets!
