The photo post shows on the white cake an Amane Fujimiya topper and a heart-shaped topped with letters “Happy Birthday Amane”, surrounded by blue flowers, and a big blue ribbon behind them.

Everything changes‚ however‚ when he happens to see Mahiru sitting alone in a park during a rainstorm. Thus begins the strange relationship between this incredibly unlikely pair!
