Yatora Yaguchi is a sophomore who is bored with his normal life. He studies well and plays with his friends, but he doesn't really enjoy any of these activities. Bound by the rules, he secretly envies those who dare to do things differently.

This is until you discover the joy of drawing. When Yataro sees a painting by a member of the Art Club, he is fascinated by the colors used. Then, in an art exercise, he tries to convey his language using color instead of words. After this experience, Yataro is so engrossed in this activity that he decides that he wants to do it for the rest of his life. But there will be many obstacles in your decision, including your parents.
