Shoya Ishida is a boy who hates more than anything, things that make him bored. An elementary school student, he is a bully but can’t help but be drawn to Shoko Nishimiya, a girl who has newly transferred to his school.

But after an incident involving Shoko, Shoya begins to distance himself from everyone. Five years later, they both attend different high schools and go through different experiences and grow up in their separate environments.
