Sinopsis

Take one step ahead, and you don’t know what might happen

Heion Yoshitoshi adalah murid baru di Private Chiyotani High School yang biasa-biasa saja dan tidak memiliki minat apapun, lalu memilih sekolah yang dia sebut memiliki ranking rata-rata dengan alasan jaraknya yang dekat dari rumahnya (hanya 5 menit). Mottonya adalah … dia ingin hidup tenang disekolah itu, tanpa dipusingkan oleh hal-hal yang menurutnya merepotkan misalnya ikut kegiatan klub disekolah.

Dia kemudian bertemu dengan seorang gadis manis bernama Rina Fujimoto yang merupakan teman sekelasnya. Awalnya ia mengagumi Rina namun temannya Shirou memupus mimpinya terhadap Rina yang membuatnya menyerah (well … tau kan maksudnya xD).

Saat sedang melamun memandang lautan didekat sekolahnya, ia tanpa sengaja melihat Rina yang sepertinya sedang berbicara dengan seorang cowok dari kelas lain (mungkin bisa disebut diganggu daripada sekedar berbicara xD), awalnya ia tidak memperdulikan hal itu, sampai Rina kemudian justru memanggil dirinya dan menanyakan arah ruang musik.

Heion kemudian mengantarkan Rina menuju ruang musik dan mengetahui bahwa Rina ingin masuk menjadi anggota Club Wind Orchestra di sekolah tersebut. Sayangnya, Rina harus memupus mimpinya manakala mengetahui ternyata club tersebut akan ditutup dan dibubarkan dengan alasan tidak ada kemajuan yang berarti saat ikut kegiatan diluar sekolah. Namun Rina masih belum menyerah, selain karena pesan gurunya waktu ia masih SMP, juga karena kesukaannya yang dalam terhadap musik khususnya Trumpet (terompet xD) dan ingin terus melanjutkan hal itu sampai ia SMU. Melihat hal itu, Heion yang awalnya tidak memiliki minat dibidang apapun apalagi terhadap club activity, tanpa sadar justru membagikan brosur tentang Club Wind Orchestra saat acara Recruiting Club Activities, dan tergerak untuk menghidupkan kembali Wind Orchestra di sekolahnya.
