Summer, 1966. Kaoru Nishimi (''Ryouhei Kimura'') constantly moves from town to town and school to school due to his father's job. Because of his [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation intelligence]], his wealthy background, and his nausea problems, Kaoru has been alienated by his classmates and is subsequently seen as an outcast. When Kaoru [[NewTransferStudent transfers]] to yet another school, this time in Kyushu, he expects the same things to happen as they always do. However, this time his luck begins to change as he meets seeming {{delinquent}} Sentarou Kawabuki (''Yoshimasa Hosoya'') and pretty class president Ritsuko Mukae (''Creator/YuukaNanri''), and the [[ThreeAmigos trio]] begin bonding over {{jazz}} music.
