However, his plan immediately goes wrong when he meets Hirotaka Nifuji, an old friend from high school. Although she tries to keep her secret by asking him for a drink after work, her cover is blown when he casually asks her whether or not she will attend the next Summer Comiket. Fortunately for her, the only witnesses, Hanako Koyanagi and Tarou Kabakura, are also Otaku.
Later that night, the couple go out for a drink after so many years of separation.

He makes her a solemn promise to always be there for her, to support her and to help her drop her farm in Monster Hunter. Surprised by the suggestion, Narumi immediately accepts. So the two otaku start dating and their delightfully uncomfortable romance begins.
