【Episode 1 “Don’t Get Grabby, Idiot”】
Asahi Kashiwagi is a normal high school student, and one morning he just happens to watch a strange fortune-telling program on TV. He spends a moment thinking about how odd it is, before rushing out of the house to not be late.
However, along the way, he meets five girls in the worst ways imaginable, and each encounter is reminiscent of the fortune telling he watched that morning.
New TV anime Love Flops
Asahi Kashiwagi is an ordinary high school boy, just like any other you’d probably see if you looked around anywhere in the city.
On his way to school one morning without any doubts about how typical the day would be, various misfortunes suddenly befall him.
Everything occurred in accordance with the strange fortune-telling he watched that morning when he happened to turn on the TV.
As he waded through all these troubles in the morning, he met five different girls in the worst possible circumstances.
Physically and mentally exhausted, he finally arrived at school. However, he found that the five girls were also now attending his school as either transfer students or new teachers.
Asahi did his best to hide his face, but of course there was no way that could work…
Yoshio Ijuin, proclaiming himself as Asahi’s best friend, asks Asahi about his relationship with the five girls.
As he spends more time with the five girls, they realize that everything was a misunderstanding, and slowly they begin to open up a little.
After class, when Asahi went to his shoe locker preparing to go home, he found a love letter.
An unknown sender said they would be waiting for him under the cherry tree behind the school building.
This also was in accordance with the fortune-telling from that morning. Asahi then made his way to the cherry tree to confirm everything.
Five winds of love blow through during the cherry blossom season, and the curtain rises on this faintly heartrending love story of youth.
