Slow loop synopsis

When Hiyori, a girl whose late father taught her the joys of fishing, went to the seaside to spend some time alone, she never thought she would find another girl there. After a while, this girl named Koharu fishes and cooks them together as they gradually get to know each other. During their brief time together, Kohru discovers that Hiyori went to sea that day because she hesitated to meet her new adoptive family that night. But what a coincidence! Koharu will also meet his new family that day! It can’t be a coincidence, can it? All that remains is to follow these two “sisters” and their new life together!
