One spring day... I came face to face with my destiny.

Second-year high school student Tomoya Aki encounters a beautiful girl atop a cherry blossom strewn hill. Tomoya, sensing the hand of fate at work in this meeting, is determined to create “the ultimate dating sim” with this girl as the main heroine. To this end, Tomoya attempts to enlist the assistance of Eriri Spencer Sawamura — Art Club ace and superstar doujinshi author — and Utaha Kasumigaoka, top student at school and ultra-popular light novel author. As he does this, Tomoya learns that the beautiful girl he met that day was someone entirely unexpected.
