FIRST COMES FRIENDSHIP, THEN COMES LOVE? After moving from the boonies to downtown Tokyo, Yamato toils at his aunt’s all-girl apartment complex. But along with free room and board, he gets to live right next door to Suzuka, the girl of his dreams. Yamato is sure that he’s in love with Suzuka, but what’s the next step? If he tells her how he feels, it could ruin their friendship. But when Yamato unexpectedly breaks a high school track-and-field record, Suzuka suddenly seems possibly romantically interested. The words ""I love you"" dance on the tip of Yamato’s tongue. But once he utters them, his life will change forever!
