Set against the backdrop of 2027 Kyoto which shows the effects of massive technological advancement, the story follows a bookish high-schooler, Naomi (voiced by KITAMURA Takumi), who adores his classmate Ruri (voiced by HAMABE Minami) from afar, too shy to approach her. One day, Naomi meets a mysterious man who claims to be his future self. The visitor also delivers a world-shattering revelation – the teenage Naomi’s reality is nothing more than a virtual simulation of the past and he has come to alter it. Specifically, he wants to prevent a tragedy that is inevitably to befall Ruri, the future love of his life. The two team up and, under the visitor’s tutelage, Naomi slowly gains Ruri’s affection. But the adult Naomi hides a secret agenda..

Director ITO Tomohiko delivers an ambitious teen love story by combining it with the engaging and detailed aspects of the sci-fi time travelling genre. An animated adventure which will capture the hearts of both children and adults alike.
