A Childhood Friend and His First Love
The story of Osamake is about a guy seeking vengeance for his first love with the help of his childhood friend. It might sound romantic and cruel, but Haru along with his childhood friend, Kuro, and his first love, Shirokusa will make your Osamake experience the best it can be!
And yet, here we are again in a tight debate on who would win! Would Haru end up with his childhood friend, Kuro? Or with his first love, Shirokusa? Who are you going to vote for?
Romance Is In the Air
Have you ever fell in love for the first time? Have you ever had such intense feelings for someone?
For our main lead Haru, he did fall in love for the very first time. Haru fell for Shirokusa, an elegant, determined character whose debut novels won an award. He admired Shirokusa for her talent and beauty, and most of all, after seeing Shirokusa’s smile, he fell in love with her.
But sadly, things did not end up well for Haru. As he learns that his first love is dating a well-known celebrity, he is devastated. Haru felt depressed and distraught, leaving him broken and longing for peace of mind. And that was how his first love ended.
Luckily, Haru’s got a kindhearted childhood friend whom he rejected once before. And that childhood friend is no other than Kuroha. Despite being rejected, Kuroha earnestly comforted Haru when he felt sad and lonely. She praised Haru for being kind and even told him that Shirokusa’s missing a lot.
And the best thing Kuroha did was lift Haru’s spirits and encourage him to take revenge on his first love! Isn’t it good to have someone like Kuroha around?
