On the island of Hatsune, where the spring scenery lasts all year round, stands a large cherry tree that never withers. The mysterious cherry tree, rumored to grant any wish, is the symbol of Hatsune Island. However, one day, it suddenly turns into an ordinary tree... The scent of spring enhances this slightly bittersweet tale of Sakura and the Kazami Academy Newspaper Club.
