online game in the past, but only found out that her player was actually a Nekama (male player who pretends
to be a woman). After having the painful experience, one day, another female character confesses her love to
him, and her player Ako Tamaki is a real bishoujo girl! But he soon learns that she has a serious communication
disorder and can't even distinguish reality and online. Can Hideki and his "Guild" friends save her?
