Sakamichi Onoda is an otaku who has recently started high school. He intended to join an anime club and meet new people, but the club has since disbanded. Onoda needed a break, and he rode his hefty old city bicycle all the way to Akihabara.
During the trip, he met Shunsuke Imaizumi, a dedicated biker who frequently uses the school’s steep hill for bicycle practice.
