Summary of Seishun Buta Yarou series

One day, in the library where Sakuta Azusagawa is studying, he comes across an unexpected sight: a beautiful high school girl dressed as a bunny. It turns out to be Mai Sakurajima, a famous former actress and fellow Minegahara High School classmate. However, his surprise at seeing Mai in such a racy outfit in the library is nothing compared to the shocking realization that he's the only one who can see her! Sakuta remembers an event from his past and offers to help Mai figure out the reason for her invisibility. Although their relationship is initially contentious, the two quickly grow closer: Mai and Sakuta come to appreciate each other and their friendship blossoms into a budding romance.

All the greater is her determination to solve Mai's dilemma. As the investigation unfolds, Sakuta attributes Mai's situation to an urban legend known as Adolescence Syndrome: strange phenomena that occur in adolescence, unexplained by science and often dismissed as delusions. With few promising results, Mai's situation deteriorates to the point where not being seen is the least of her worries. Will Sakuta and Mai be able to unravel the mystery of their Juvenile Syndrome before it goes away completely?
