Synopsis for Yofukashi no Uta

Kou Yamori superficially looks like a typical high school student. Relatively good at his studies and friendly to his classmates, he tries very hard to keep up this facade. However, one day he decides to stop pretending, drops out of school, and develops insomnia from not having an outlet for his energy during the day. Walking alone at night makes him feel a little better, although he is aware that his insomnia should be treated as a serious problem.

On one of these walks, Kou meets a strange girl, Nazuna Nanakusa, who diagnoses him with the cause of his insomnia: although he has made changes in his life, she keeps preventing him from experiencing true freedom. She tells him that if he's not happy with how he spends his waking hours, he can't sleep. When he seems to have resolved his current concerns, Nazuna invites him to her apartment to share her futon. After a while, unaware that he is only pretending to be unconscious, she bends over and bites his neck.
