College life is a good time, full of energy, promise and friendship.

But add love to the equation, and things start getting quite complicated! Roommates Yuta and Shinobu are in love with Hagumi, a cute transfer student, yet none of them have any clue as to the others’ feelings. And Ayumi’s in love with Takumi who’s in love with Rika who’s still in love with her late husband. With so much love to go around, why is everyone still single?
