Kodaka Hasegawa is having a hard time making friends at his new school, not least because he fits perfectly into the cliché of a bat with his blonde hair. One day, however, he suddenly bursts into a conversation between his bad-tempered classmate Yozora, who is also decried as a loner, and her imaginary friend Tomo. After the sad realization that they both have no friends, they quickly found the Rinjinbu, a club for lonely students who are looking for friends. Through all kinds of joint activities, their loneliness should be overcome and friendships made. There is no question that this is not without problems.
