The story is based on the story of the main character, Rikuo Uozumi , and the men and women around him, who struggle with life, dreams and love. The animation is faithful to the setting of the original film and is set in the small neighborhoods along the private railroad line near Shinjuku 20 years ago. The story revolves around Shimokitazawa Station to Matsubara Station, and the animation faithfully depicts the social scene of 2002 as set in the original film, including home phone and public phone as the main means of contact, analog television at home, and video cassette recorders.
