Tamura Yukisada (Tamura-kun) is an ordinary boy who likes Japanese history, especially the history of the Kamakura era.
One day in July, Yukisada notices a strange atmosphere in his class, an atmosphere of romance. Some of his classmates are now lovey-dovey couples. Why is that? Because it's the last summer of their junior high school days. It's the summer of teenage romance.
Although he is not caught up in the same atmosphere, he becomes curious about a girl. The girl he's curious about is Matuzawa Komaki (short blue hair), a non-talkative girl who's good at running, but she has a problem; she tends to answer with "I'll return to my home planet" when she's asked by her teacher about what she wants to do after junior high school. Yukisada wanted to know about her true identity, so he joined her in her early morning exercise.
After the high school entrance exam, Yukisada meets Souma Hiroka (long brown hair), an unhappy girl who attracts all the attention because of her beauty. She can't and won't make any friends because of her trauma. Yukisada, by chance, knows about this and becomes acquainted with her.
But what happened between Yukisada and Komaki?
