Minato visits a recitation session held in an anime event. He is fascinated by the voice actors' performance
he saw and decides to enter Suidobashi Animation Academy. He meets Chikako there. She is the previous
resident of his room that he has moved into, and is the one who left a message in a USB. While the two
have the same dream to become a voice actor, Minato struggles with himself who cannot put his soul into
a role and Chikako is afraid of her past trauma. With the support of seniors, such as Ryota and Kei, they
encourage each other and try to face themselves to grow up. What will they find beyond that?
