At first glance Yukishiro Nanako seems like a normal high school girl, but she has a notable eccentricity: instead of speaking, she communicates only through written senryu poetry! This means she expresses herself only in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.
Eiji’s pet rabbit / has a disgusting habit / (like, it’s REALLY gross)
fire flowers bloom / two young hearts stroll together / love is in the air
it is summertime / and therefore swimsuit season; / the girls go shopping!
club president skips / her club’s amusement park trip / hoping sparks will fly
the fortune teller / (if she can spell your name right) / will divine your fate
the pair met by chance / and their lives changed forever / thanks to senryu
Eiji’s big sister / girl with the petal pink hair / appears on the scene ... and then ... Nanako diets / for the sake of a person / whom she will not name
she wants to go see / the fireflies in the woods / but ghosts? NOPE. NO THANKS
Nanako's father / knows all of her expressions / ...wait, what's this new one?!
girl with a sketch pad / has trouble with expressions / so speaks through her art
cherry blossoms bloom / as a pair of brand-new friends / writes some poetry
rainy day blues? no! / Nanako believes in the / Umbrella of Love
