I have to admit. This was sort of a confusing anime. It wasn’t as mind raping as Serial Experiments Lain, but you have to keep track of a lot of things and people and remember what’s been said. (I made a list at the end and drew connection lines. =] )

The story starts off with Asou Renji walking along the railroad tracks. He expresses that he would like to be put in a ‘Knight in shining armor saves princess’ situations, but like every apathetic anime school boy ever, thinks this is unlikely to happen. As he gets to an abandoned rail station where he likes toread he sees a girl.

Pretty young lass. Pink hair. Eye patch. That whole shtick. Her name is Shindou Chihiro  In a very anti-climatic manner he says goodbye to her and she returns the wave. The scene switchs to another character, Hirono Hiro, who seems to have hit a road block with his manga.

He gets a message from Shindou Kei (relation to Chihiro? Yes. Sisters.), an childhood friend of his, telling him to come to her christmas party. He decides to go out and gather information for his manga and maybe stop by the party.

Hiro enters a church to gether information for his manga where he meets Amamiya Yuko who is either dressed like a russian or a nun, most likely a nun. She says she is waiting for someone but walks past Hiro, wishing him a merry Christmas.

Outside a girl passes him on a bike. Turns out that was his bike! Oh Shi- Hiro gives chase to the attractive female thief. When he catches up to her, he finds his bike wrecked and the girl unconscious on the ground. When she comes to she introduces herself as Miyamura Miyako and said she was pursuing a purse thief. Having lost her house keys in her purse she convinces Hiro to let her stay with him for the night.

THE SCENE CHANGES~ Asou Renji heads into the same church that Hiro was in, accept now it is daylight. He asks for advice from Himura Yuu who is also waiting for someone. Renji wants advice on what job he should do. Yuu deducts that since Renji likes reading that he should be a publisher.

Renji being the adolescent that he is, thinks that was bad advice. Renji then finds himself wondering to the abandoned rail station again. He, again, meets Shindou Chihiro. After they esablish that they have met before they make a bit of small talk.Chihiro starts to leave, saying that she must be a bother being in Renji’s space. Renj, however, thinks the opposite.

WOAHA~ Craaaaazy kids and their drugs…Anyway, after they get over that, they make a promise to see each other again. The next day, as promised, Renji goes back. Chihiro embraces him in what I suppose is delight. The chat, and establish that they are friends. And much like a little girl, Renji goes skipping home with joy. =/
