Wakana Gojo is a first-year high school student who dreams of becoming a hina doll craftsman. One day during his first semester, his popular classmate Marin Kitagawa sees him making doll costumes in the school’s sewing room. By chapter 62, Gojo finally realizes that his feelings for Marin are the same as his feelings for the hina dolls, clearly hinting that he loves her too. However, the manga did not say if the two eventually got together. When the anime series begins, Marin is 15-years-old. Her birthday is on March 5th. That makes her just a couple of weeks older than Gojou, as he is also 15-years-old, but with a birthday on March 21st.
