now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

In junior high Futaba had a thing for a boy named Kou Tanaka, but he moved away before she had a chance to tell him how she felt.

Considering how things went during those years, it’s no surprise that Futaba wanted to mix things up upon entering high school.

Futaba attempts to fit in with the other girls by acting sloppier and less ladylike than she really is, and it works!
