In episode 1, viewers will get to learn about Wakana Gojou’s isolated and quiet life in high school. He will spend most of his time in the home ec room and focus on working on traditional dolls. It is expected that glimpses of his childhood will also be shown, and there can be allusions to the traumatic incident that changed his life. After a brief encounter with Marin Kitagawa in class, Wakana will focus on the rest of his daily affairs without thinking much of the incident.
However, in the final few moments of the episode, the two completely different high schoolers will learn a bit about each other that would sow the seeds of their unlikely friendship. While it remains to be seen whether Kitagawa will open up about her interest in cosplay to Wakana in the first episode itself or not, it’s almost certain that the duo will have an unexpected encounter in the home ec room.
