The story follows Kukuru Misakino, a young woman working at an aquarium. There she meets Fuuka Miyazawa, a former idol from Tokyo who put that life behind her. Together the two spend their days at the aquarium and through their new friendship explore their feelings and what they want to do going forward with their whole life ahead of them.
