    It’s the year 2xxx.
    On the outskirts of Akihabara,

    Toru’s doctor insists he should make the most of the little time he has left,
    and he signs on as a temporary manager of a hookah lounge.

    Through his new job, Toru meets three very unusual girls.
    Although cheerful at a glance, they’re battling with work problems or past trauma,
    searching for a place to belong.

    what will he find once the girls fully open up to him?
