Overview

School is coming to a close an all-girl lycee in coastal Japan. Kayako Kirishima has only a short time before she will undoubtedly go to college in Tokyo. But she is timid and unsure of herself. Masami Endo has been made a social outcast for having an abortion. She is generally outgoing and experienced in life. They meet in class and become good friends but, as the relationship proceeds, Kirishima falls in love with her friend and matters become more personal. During recess, Endo disappears and Kirishima discovers several untruths about her paramour. A cold reception on her return prompts Endo to tell her friend the entire truth - and that often hurts. Nananan reaches inside feminine sexuality and, with clear outline and confused feelings, she explores these intimate torments proving you can make a Blue manga from black and white.
