Sawako Kuronuma is the perfect heroine...for a horror movie. Nicknamed "Sadako" after the haunting movie character, everyone is afraid to come near her for fear of being cursed. But her whole life changes when she befriends the most popular boy in class, Shota Kazehaya.
It’s been one year since Sawako and Kazehaya confessed their love to each other. With their last high school festival approaching, Sawako gives it her all to make it the best one ever. Meanwhile, Kazehaya seems to be overworking himself…
