About

Shy little Kohane Azusawa is always afraid of doing anything. Then one day, she’s bombarded by singing and music coming from someone in the back alley. That someone turns out to be An Shiraishi, and with her at the helm, Kohane decides to walk the path of a street musician.

Sekai

An alleyway world with walls covered in graffiti and concert posters. Street cafe owner MEIKO and her two helpers, Miku and DJ Len, serve as advisers to help Kohane and her friends discover their true feelings.
