After the Rain

There are moments great and small in which circumstance and choices, in equal measure, define a person. Akira Tachibana was once the ace of a track club, but an injury quelled her passion for sports. Masami Kondo, a divorced father, had ambitions of being a writer and now manages a restaurant. When Akira takes a job at Masami’s business, it is the intersection of their seemingly disconnected lives that makes each of them reconsider and redefine everything about themselves.

The Sound of Rain

Akira Tachibana works at Café Garden Restaurant, where her manager, Mr. Kondo, has a habit of apologizing to customers. But Akira doesn’t seem to mind.

Fresh Wet Leaves

A forgotten cellphone leads to a dire situation for Akira. Luckily Kondo is there to help.


Seems like Akira’s words flew over Kondo’s head. But you know what they say: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

An Unexpected Shower

How can you tell if you’re compatible? Go on a date! And it looks like Akira has more than one in her future…

The Smell of Rain

Akira isn’t sure what’s cuter: Yuto or his pet hamster. And what’s even better still? Getting to walk the pair home to see Kondo!

Light Rain

Rumor has it that if you get the right character keychain, it will bring you closer to the person you like. Sounds farfetched, but nothing ventured, nothing gained!


As a typhoon bears down upon the café, Kase shares her opinion with Akira. Too bad it’s not what Akira really wants to hear…

Gentle Rain

Yoshizawa needs a haircut, so Yui volunteers to lend a hand. There’s only one problem: Yui isn’t as good at hairdressing as she claims!

An Agonizing Rain

Akira and Haruka spend time together at the festival, but when Kondo unexpectedly appears, Akira becomes distracted. This isn’t what Haruka wanted at all!

Sun Shower

Akira receives some long-awaited news, but her feelings about it aren’t certain. Perhaps the books Akira and Kondo purchased will provide some words of wisdom.

Yet More Rain

Kondo and Chihiro have an unexpected conversation. In turn, Kondo reunites with something he long thought lost to him.

After the Rain

A promise made is a promised kept. Tachibana must tend to a promise she has neglected. Kondo must resurrect an old ambition. Together they’ll keep their promises, new and old.
