The story features two senior high school students Saikou (Sato) and Shuujin (Kamiki) who aspire to be manga artists and work together as a team where Saikou is in charge of the drawings and Shuujin comes up with the story. Both Sato and Kamiki will be doing the drawings featured in the movie themselves thus this will also mark their debut as manga artists.
