Minori had all of misfortune: illness-stricken, constantly bullied, and orphan. After a certain rainy day, she disappeared from school without anyone noticed, because of her being admitted in a hospital far from the school. After 2 months passed, two of her classmates, Takashi and Kyouko, received an anonymous email with the content about a summer festival taking place at a nearby town.


The first episode brings a very sensitive issue: bullying. Even though the bullying acts that are displayed are limited to verbal abuses, your emotion may rise up a bit after seeing how those kids act rudely toward minori. It feels like watching Koe no Katachi, but with a strange feeling of seeing a highschooler act that rude. Maybe only stupid people who will do that kind of thing. At least after watching this series, you will learn that bullying is a stupid thing to do, and doing good deeds are more comfortable to be done. If you prefer a drama series that begin with a misfortune, this 10 minutes anime is worth to be watched.
