Outline

Secchan is a girl who prefers sex, a simple and clear-cut act, over meticulous communication with people. A terrorist attack in Tokyo creates an air that forces everyone to think and make choices. As if to avoid doing so, Secchan spends more time with Akkun, a boy who is unable to find interest in anyone. The author is an illustrator and, in her first manga, she delicately portrays the sentiments of a young woman living in today’s society.
