It's not easy to become and live as a mangaka, as Mashiro knows from his late uncle.

At 9th grade, he left his notebook with a sketch of Azuki, a girl he likes. Takagi, a first-rate student found it and tries to convince Mashiro to draw a manga with his story. Mashiro doesn't like the idea and declines. But he has to change his mind after hearing that Azuki wants to become a voice actress and has already gotten a good reply from a production company. Out of confusion, Mashiro asks Azuki if their dreams become reality, will she marry him? She says yes, only if their dreams become true, and not otherwise!! Now, the lives of wannabe mangakas begin!!!
