Synopsis of Sorairo Utility

"Destined for obscurity, shall I graduate as a mere extra?" pondered Minami Aoba, devoid of notable talents or passions. Can she accept a high school denouement as an unremarkable side character? Beyond the school gates, Minami quests for her "special uniqueness," serendipitously discovering a golf driving range. There, she encounters Haruka Akane, a part-time worker, and with a golf club in hand—the "Utility"—Minami's journey begins.

Thus unfolds the tale of Minami and golf. Victory is not the sole pursuit in golf; the joy is in every facet! Alongside the luminous Haruka and Ayaka Hoshimi, who dreams of influence, they seek their moment in the sun—to become "protagonists"! Today, Minami, the super novice, swings her club with renewed vigor.
