Taiki, one of the kazetsukai, leaves behind the village and his brother’s widow, Yukio, to become a mathematics teacher at Nao’s school. Nao learns of Taiki’s power after he uses it to save her life. Nao and her friends travel to the kazetsukai village to learn for themselves the secret of how to control the wind.
