Synopsis

Shy and socially inept, Kentaro Amanosizuku, 35, works for the city but lives with his parents, a pet frog and video games as his chief interests. Worried about their son's future, Kentaro's parents look into matchmaking services, seemingly to no avail. Then a nibble. Would Kentaro be interested in meeting their daughter Naoko? A meeting is arranged. Naoko is a beautiful young woman but she is blind. Kentaro is smitten. But Naoko's father has his doubts about Kentaro and the meeting comes to nought. Then, one day, Naoko's mother comes to visit at Kentaro's office. Is he still interested in her daughter?
