Synopsis: Story 1: Himikoi (also included in Rabu Kare - Gokujou Men Dokuhon!) What if the secret she could never tell was revealed, just before her high school graduation? To be able to face her feelings for Yoshii, whom she has a crush on, the two of them begin a secret game in their secret place. With the last day of school impending, what will be the outcome to her love...? Story 2: During a Stormy Night After losing her cellphone, Nao is only hoping that someone nice enough would pick it up, but much to her surprise, the person who finds it is the guy from the video store near her house. Too shy to go and reveal herself, she starts communicating with him solely over the phone. Story 3: The Glass-bead Bridge According to the old legend, if you dig out a glass-bead from the famous glass-bead bridge, your love wish will come true. That's exactly what Niina is trying to do during the cold winter time. Every night going to the glass-bead bridge and slowly digging, she eventually gets spotted by her old middle school classmate. Not promising to even meet up once, they still keep seeing each other every night by the glass-bead bridge. Will Niina's wish come true? Story 4: The Red Turtle's Dream "I like Sensei." Riku is loving him one-sidedly, but Sensei, who is very self-centered, doesn't even try to accept others. It is only during the short time while she's looking after his pet turtle, Kamekichi, that she feels closer to him, but Sensei's emptiness can't be filled with anything. She wishes for him to find happiness, even though she knows she can never be the one to fulfil it. Story 5: A Perfect Day for a Picnic A broken family can only find comfort in a family that went through the same problems. Years pass and people grow old. Some grow into wiser adults, some into young adults, and some into teenagers; teenagers that become interested in love and feelings. Their nervousness and awkwardness can lead to an uncomfortable situation, one that may make them regret what they did. Are love and feelings stronger than family bonds? Story 6: The Hideout of Those Two Thanks to her constant bluffing, Chi always spends her days on her own. Her only solace is the secret hideout from her childhood where a kind and protective Nii-chan used to live leaving her with a key and a promise. Will he really come back and when he does, what will change for Chi?
