This is a spinoff of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, a title credited for the recent popularity of animes and light novels. This story is an easygoing school romantic comedy that takes place in the Koyoen area of Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture. While Nagato Yuki was a stoic girl in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, in this title she is portrayed as a girl who is full of emotion and in love. The title is distinctive in that themes of supernatural powers and aliens have been taken out, and all the characters are now merely "regular students", so this title can be enjoyed by itself.
