After nurturing an unrequited love for years, Naoya Mukai is finally dating her childhood friend, Saki Saki. However, as he tries to commit to this relationship, he receives an abrupt confession from Nagisa Minase.
At first, Naoya tries to reject her but is quickly overwhelmed with a feeling of not wanting to hurt Nagisa. Trying to avoid betraying his girlfriend’s trust in him, Naoya thinks of a “solution” to make the two girls happy – in two steps. Naturally, Saki rejects this idea, but thanks to Naoya and Nagisa’s persistence, she reluctantly submits.
With this, a three-way affair begins between Naoya, his girlfriend, and his “other” girlfriend, as they develop a relationship that deviates from the social norm.
