Shy, reserved Yui Yamada is a budding horticulturist who is responsible for caring for her high school’s greenery. While tending to her campus’ morning glories, Yamada has a chance encounter with the vivacious, sporty Tomoka Kase, star of the girl’s track team. Yamada and Kase could not be more different and they have a lot to learn about one another, but as their friendship grows, their feelings begin to blossom into something more…
The OVA special stars Minami Takahashi (Food Wars!, FLIP FLAPPERS, Log Horizon) as Yui Yamada and Ayane Sakura (BanG Dream! S2, Non Non Biyori, My Hero Academia) as Tomoka Kase. The special is directed by Takuya Satou (Strawberry Marshmallow, STEINS;GATE, Girls Beyond the Wasteland) and produced by studio Zexcs (Diabolik Lovers, Frame Arms Girl, Say “I Love You”). The manga series from which the special is adapted has garnered overwhelmingly positive reader reviews and critical feedback for its authentic voice and the evocative depiction of its protagonists.
