The manga centers on Sei Saotome, a high school girl who has just failed an exam, and began going to a prep school to study for her next one. She can't keep up with her studies, and talking to her friends is awkward, so she thinks this is the end of her high school life. However, she meets two boys: Mizuki, a silent and handsome boy who likes astronomy; and Taiyō, a foul-mouthed prodigy who is at the top of his class. Both are planning to enter the astronomy club, and they invite her. Sei's everyday life is still spent trying to find a place to belong, but it is about to to become brighter.
