Since i've bought and shared Dengeki Daisy from Betsucomi, i thought i share another new series too. I'm not sure if it is going to be good, so far it looks pretty typical to me though.
Rei, Kazusa and Banri are childhood friends. This summer, their relationship is going to change...!?
Here we go.
I started with Rei's narration "Dear, when i was 17 that year, the summer was hot." It shows Banri riding a motor bicycle, Kazusa riding a bicycle and Rei standing on Kazusa's bicycle. One of them shouted "The train is coming!" One of them replied "Let's do it!" and one of them answered "Understood!"
Kazusa is holding on to Banri's shoulder to tab on his speed. Rei said "What a good feeling!" Kazusa said " Rei, Be sure to hold on tightly!"
A traffic police is chasing after them but they managed to shake him off by dashing through a traffic light in the nick of time.
Narration: They were called childhood friends since they started wearing diapers, like siblings they did everything together.
This scene shows them teasing each other on their way to school.
Narration: This is my favourite place. This summer is starting with me not know what love is.
Rei and Kazusa are in the school's archery team. They are having a friendly match and Rei said "I've lost again." in a sulky face. Kazusa replied "I've done archery longer than you and that is why, just continue to practice with the aim to be better in the end". Rei though to herself that Kazusa is really great and wonders when she will have such confidence like Kazusa and she is actually the persident of archery club and she gave a sigh.
Kazusa noticed that Rei sighed, he patted her head and comforted her. He said "I'll practice with you if you feel insecure (or unsure?), President." Rei thank him as she thinks that she is always relying on him. To Rei, Kazusa is strong yet gentle。She hopes she's like him too. And they wonders where is Banri.
The scene changes to Banri, he kissing a girl. Rei and Kazusa opened the door and saw Banri kissing on of their club members. Rei shouted saying "Do not target girls from our club!" Banri replied "It's alright isn't it? We only just kiss". Rei asked him about the girl whom Banri was together with recently and he casually said they separated. Rei wonders why Benri likes to make girls sad and its many girls. Banri said "Humans have to die eventually, why don't we just enjoy life?" Narration: He is fun to be around with but after being friends for so long, i do not know when is he his true self.
Narration: Between us, there is no difference between boys and girls. It's a natural thing that its always the three of them whatever they do. The scene shows them going home together and there are 2 boys practicing baseball and they find their platonic relationship unbelievable. At this moment, a baseball hit a glass window and it is going to drop right on to Rei!!!
Kazusa covered Rei with his body and Banri cover both of them with his body. Rei saw blood on Banri's hand and was worried while Banri was really mad and he shouted "Bakayaro! Do you intend to leave scars on a girl?" Rei looked shocked seeing Banri this mad. The baseball boys apologized.
Rei seems to be still in shocked and she suddenly realised both Banri and Kazusa had become man.
Scene changes to the three of them helping out in a alcohol stall during a fireworks festival. Kazusa saw Rei's hair sticking on to her neck and helped her with it. (~what a scandalous act)
Rei felt her heart skipped a beat and wonders why. Meanwhile, the stall owner ask them to help look around for a lost kid. Rei felt left out as she's walking behind them. Kazusa asked her whats wrong and she replied saying there's nothing wrong. While Banri asked if she's having a period!?! Both Banri and Kazusa replied in unison "Of course we know, we will stay together no matter how many years". Rei blushes abit feeling embarrassed.
She grabs each of them in one hand and said "I'm ok, let's go look for the lost kid". Rei felt that her embarrassment is trivial compared to their feelings. She wants to be together with them. At this moment, fireworks starts and they all looked up in the sky. They made a promise to come here again next year, the year after and for the next 10 years, the three of them, together like how they are now.
Rei saw Banri's injured arm and is reminded of his words when he saved her. Kazusa saw her looking at Banri. The scene changes to them playing "ganken" to split into 2 groups to look for the lost kid. Banri paired with Rei while Kazusa is by himself. Rei wonders why is she feeling a little nervous. Banri said "You look nice in this Yukata" and Rei's heart skipped abit!
Rei is shocked and asked him why the sudden... while Banri grabbed her hand and said "Let go for a date!" Rei in shock and she blushes when she realised Banri holding her hand. When she returned to her senses, she tried to stop Banri and said they are suppose to look for the lost kid. While Banri replied saying that it's alright as Kazusa is around to look for the lost kid and he added "I thought you have nothing to say"
Rei seems alittle shocked when she hears Banri's reply and she wonders what does he means. Banri looking at Rei's boobs and says that she is not his type of girl (think he like girls with big boobs) and he thinks Rei and Kazusa is compatible. Rei wonders why she's feeling kinda sad suddenly.
They held hands and roam the festival while Rei is having alot of thoughts about herself being kinda weird today, about Rei's hand and all. Suddenly Banri pulls her and asked her to run!
Banri then asked to look up and she saw the beautiful fireworks!
Rei admiring the beauitful fireworks and she took a peek at Banri. She seems to be captivated by him.
She blushes and thinks to herself "It's the first time i see him with such an expression". The scene changes to them taking a rest on a platform beside the sea. Banri asked about her feelings after seeing the beautiful fireworks. Somehow, Rei blushes and is speechless.
Bari turned and looked at her and said "I wanted to let you see that (fireworks) so say something". Rei's heart is beating real fast and she seems to want to tell Banri something but is stopped by Kazusa's sudden appearance. Kazusa wants to exchange places with Banri as he said they have been playing while he was looking for the lost kid. Banri agreed and went to look for the lost kid.
Rei looks kind of sad when Banri left to look for the lost kid. Kazusa asked her what happened and she replied "I think i like Banri". Kazusa was shocked with his eyes widen, seems like he did not expect this to be Rei's reply.
On the other hand, Banri found the lost kid and carried him on his shoulders so he can find his sister.
Soon, his sister saw him and rush towards them. She tripped on and fall but Banri managed to grab her in time. She thank Banri and Banri is captivated by her, a beautiful sister the lost boy has.
Narration: That summer, i'm in love and i do not know that everything is going to change.
While looks like a typical plot with 3 childhood friends, 1 girl and 2 guys with one of the guy liking the heroine while she likes the other guy and this other guy likes another girl whom he just met.
