"On a certain spring day, I met my destiny."

Tomoya Aki is an uber otaku who works part-time to earn money to buy merchandise, but one day while delivering papers he meets a beautiful girl in an event that will change his life forever. A month later, he finds out that the girl is actually his classmate, Megumi Kato, and she's going to be the main heroine of the game he's making. The only problem? She's utterly forgettable.
