Plot Summary: The stage is Sapporo, Hokkaido. One night, Minare Koda, spills her heartbroken woes to a radio station worker she meets while out drinking. The next day, she hears a recording of her pitiful grumbling being played live over the air. Minare storms into the station in a rage, only to then be duped by the station director into doing an impromptu talk show explaining her harsh dialogue. With just one recording, the many eccentric facets of Minare’s life begin to pull every which direction as she falls ever deeper into the world of radio.

First Thoughts: Can you imagine yourself after a bad breakup, you go out in the woods and go on about that shit and somehow you end up fighting a giant bear? OK, maybe except for that last part but I do get the appeal of something like this. Minare is that relatable young adult woman you can empathize with, even if her rambling does get a bit old but still kinda funny. Who would’ve thought it would lead her to have her own radio show and maybe we’ll see some other characters interact with her throughout.



I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and remind yourself if you do go through a bad breakup, stay out of the woods.
