Summary by kat
Kuronuma Sawako nicknamed "Sadako" from the movie The Ring, has always been feared by her classmates believing that by staring at her eyes for more than three seconds would give you bad luck. Sawako, despite of being alone and avoided, is a hard working student. She spends most of her time taking good care of the plants on their school garden.
Sawako desires to be treated normally by people. She was then more inspired when she met Shota Kazehaya because of his lively and kind personality. Kazehaya is a popular boy in their school, admired by girls and is considered as "everybody's friend" which made him Sawako's role model. Sawako then tries to be a ghost for their closing ceremonies wherein she got the chance to talk to Ayane Yano and Chizuru Yoshida which later on became her friends. Their new sitting arrangements on their classroom made her even close Kazehaya, Ayane, Chizuru and Ryu Sanada, Chizuru's childhood friend. Ryu rarely speaks and got to mispronounce Sawako's name. With the help of Sawako's friends, people began to change their outlook on Sawako's personality. Being close to each other, Kazehaya and Sawako had a deeper feeling for each other though Kazehaya was quite afraid of admitting it to Sawako, and at the same time, Sawako being confused of her feelings for Kazehaya.
Sawako's friendship with Ayane and Chizuru was put on test when rumors came up about Ayane and Chizuru. Wanting to make the people believe that the rumors were not true, Sawako then tries to solve the problem that made their friendship even stronger. Later on, the person behind the rumors was unveiled with the name Ume Kurumizawa, nicknamed Kurumi, since she hates her name Ume because it sounds old-fashioned. Kurumi was secretly in love with Kazehaya ever since they were in middle school. Seeing Kazehaya and Sawako being friends made her jealous to Sawako and considered her as her rival. Kurumi then befriended Sawako to ruin the relationship between Sawako and Kazehaya.
On the new year's eve, being set up by their friends, Kazehaya and Sawako got to spend the time together at the shrine. And by being alone together, they got a clearer answer of their feelings for each other.
