The protagonist Minare Koda, who works at a soup Curry shop VOYAGER in Sapporo-city, Hokkaido, notices her own voice on the radio. The day before, Minare grumbled to Kanetsugu Matou, a director at a local radio station MRS whom she met by chance, about her lost love. Her story was secretly recorded by Matou, then it was played on the radio. Minare goes to MRS to stop the broadcast and finds Matou. But instead, he coaxes her into doing an ad-lib talk on the radio. After that, Minare is given a special program at midnight and starts working as a radio personality while working at VOYAGER.
