Shun Hashimoto is an openly gay aspiring novelist living in Okinawa who was abandoned by his parents after coming out to them. Mio Chibana is a reserved, orphaned high school student, often found spending his time by the sea. One day, the two meet on the beach, and Shun is instantly captivated by Mio. The days fly by as they slowly begin to grow closer until Mio suddenly announces that he has to leave for the mainland. Three years pass before a 20-year-old Mio returns to Okinawa to confess his love to Shun. However, in those three years, Shun's life has changed. Will he be able to accept Mio's feelings and make such a commitment?

Encoder's Notes

It’s hard to tell what is more gay: this movie or Funimation’s timing.

I had no idea what I was getting into but you have been warned. Subtitle timing is still atrocious because I ain’t sitting through this movie fixing it. No way, nope. Better watch it dubbed. There’s a signs-only track in there too. Other than that, the subs are pretty much untouched except for the styling.

The art was simply immaculate and I loved every second of this anime <3


One of the best BL adaptions I’ve seen. Gorgeous art and a down to earth story about what it means to like the opposite gender


A rare case in Yaoi where they consider the struggle of having come out to oneself and to others. This is food for the soul!


Beautiful animation, and real gay struggles covered. For the most part issues and moments have a fitting intensity level, and that’s special


LOVED IT. One of the best yaois I have watched. The story was so cute and good. Damn. Watch it!
