Plot Summary: 

   In the beginning, the story revolves around a junior high student, Mashiro Moritaka, who seems to have nothing planned for the future as of the moment. One day, he left his notebook inside the classroom. As he rushes back to retrieve it, he sees his classmate, Takagi Akito, holding on to the notebook. Amazed with Mashiro's sketches, Takagi asks him to become a manga artist for his manuscripts. 

   Being a nephew of a manga artist, Mashiro declines Takagi's offer as he explains how his uncle died from overwork. Given his classmate's circumstances, Takagi did not give up. Instead, he plans on convincing Mashiro by asking him to accompany him(Takagi) on to confessing something to his(Mashiro) crush, Azuki Miho. 

   Expecting it to be a love confession, Mashiro was surprised when Takagi told Azuki their plan on becoming manga artists. Happy with what she heard, Azuki also told them her plans on becoming a voice actress. With all the excitement filled inside his heart, Mashiro blurted out a proposal about them getting married when they both achieve their goals in the future. Specifically, only when Mashiro and Takagi manages to make an anime adaptation of their manga.
