One day, Ritsuka Uenoyama meets Mafuyu Sato and his broken guitar. Seeing the guitar gives Ritsuka feelings of how he was dedicated to learn guitar in his old days. , so he decides to repair it. Later on Mafuyu gets Ritsuka to urge and now Ritsuka has feels like he has no choice but to teach him the guitar, but when he hears Mafuyu’s singing, it gives good feeling in his heart. Ritsuka invites Mafuyu into his band and the distance between them changes. However, it seems as if Mafuyu, who can’t express his emotions well, is trapped in his own past tradegy.

The story opens with Mafuyu’s dream – he want to learn guitar because in his past one of his lover died. In memory of his lover he also wants to learn guitar but no one is their to make him learn but soon after sometime e finds out a boy name Ritsuka. He sees Sato with a guitar in bad shape with broken string. He helps him and fixes his guitar. Sato says to Ritsuka to make him learn guitar first he said no. Later Sato convience him and he decided to make him learn.

After somtime he find out Sato has a good voice too when he was playing guitar. He makes him come in Band and play guitar and song in lead for us. Sato says yes and he learns guitar and do band performance also. In between sometime he also got depressed because of remembering his love death and other band help him and he gets calm again and mentally healthy. And in the last of anime series again gets together in Band plays performance and click some photos for Band (photoshoot for upcoming band album poster). And finally it ends with 11 episode in first season.


I think after action and sports anime and they are giving a new platform to music anime too. Like in this anime they have focus on Guitar instrument and i hope in future they will focus on more instrumental anime. In this anime i personally feels like this is on different level and with a good story anime. and with good anime quality Lerche studio had made. And story is not so much complicated. It’s with a simple story about boys how they perform a band together and a good bonding share. And i will recommend this anime to watch. And i give this anime 7.7/10.
