Nino Arisugawa is a young girl who loves singing and is gifted with an extremely resonating voice. As a child, she experiences two heart-wrenching partings: one with her first love and neighbour Momo Sakaki, and another with Kanade "Yuzu" Yuzuriha, a young composer who helped her reignite her hope that her voice will one day reach Momo. Each of the two boys made a promise with Nino to find her one day through her unique singing voice, a promise that she clings on to for six years as she enters her first year of high school.

As a high schooler, Yuzu has secretly formed a band "in NO hurry to shout", but experiences writer's block without the inspiration of Nino's (of whom he is in love with) voice, almost forcing the band to disband until they reunite during Nino's orientation as a first-year high school student. When Miou Suguri, Yuzu's girlfriend with a one-sided love for him recognises his love for Nino, she decides to quit the band and let the latter replace her instead. Coupled with Miou's voice lessons and her feelings, Nino strives to improve her singing skills in an attempt to get the attention of Momo, who has changed his last name to Kiryuu and is now a professional composer. With music at the core, how will the love triangle play out?
