Seventeen-year-old Mugi Awaya and Hanabi Yasuraoka appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Akane Minagawa, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share physical intimacy driven by loneliness. Will things stay like this for them forever?

Noitamina (ノイタミナ, stylized noitaminA, “Animation” written backwards) is a Fuji Television programming block, devoted to anime, originally broadcast every Thursday late night from 24:45 to 25:15 (or 00:45 to 1:15 Friday morning). It was launched with the intention of expanding the target audience beyond the typical young male demographic. The timeslot was expanded from half an hour to a full hour in 2010, and airs Thursday nights from 24:45 to 25:45 (or 00:45 to 1:45 Friday morning) but returned to half an hour timeslot in 2015 due to 5 noitaminA-produced films to be shown in Japanese theaters in the same year. So far the only non-anime series aired on noitaminA was the live-action adaptation of Moyasimon: Tales of Agriculture in 2010. On April 15, 2010, Fuji TV and Funimation announced an agreement that allows Funimation to simulcast series from the noitaminA block in North America within an hour of their airing in Japan. More recently, it signed a deal with Amazon to exclusively stream and simulcast series from the noitaminA block through their Prime Instant Video service on March 17, 2016, starting with Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
