Playing house gets a whole new meaning with the story of Sayu and Yoshida as they venture the series together under one roof after they met that fateful night on Yoshida’s way home under a streetlight. After being broken-hearted, Yoshida had to drink his feelings out, when he walks home, he noticed Sayu, sitting in the dead of the night under a lamppost.
Sayu ran away from home, nobody knows why, but for half a year, she’s been on the run and never looked back. For six months, she went from house to house until she ended up on the streets of Tokyo where Yoshida found him. Although hesitant at first, Yoshida then took her in.
