Chika Homura begins her high school career with a goal: to develop a "cute girl" persona. After quitting the volleyball team despite her all-star status, Chika decides to join her school's underrated Wind Instrument Club and play the flute, believing it to be the most delicate and feminine instrument. For the first time in nine years, Chika reunites with her childhood friend and total opposite, Haruta Kamijou. Unfortunately for Chika, Haruta is not fooled by her efforts to become more endearing. But this does not deter Chika, and she develops a crush on the band instructor, Shinjirou Kusakabe—but so does Haruta!

However, Chika's high school life just won't go according to plan, as mysteries begin appearing around her and her friends. The club members must work together to solve the mysteries plaguing the school, all while trying to find more members to compete in musical competitions.

The mystery of the episode DO gives us some sort of clue to clue us in, however there are some mysteries that go into the realms of "prior ...

Progressive Animation Works or P.A. works has what is recognized as a rocky reputation. On one hand, they have been known to make some great anime that still hold some popularity today after their releases, but on the other hand, they've made some honestly, quite poorly made shows that really have stained their reputation (aka, Glasslip.) And so, in the Winter 2016 lineup, P.A. works have put themselves out there again with their newest work, an adaptation of HaruChika, a series about music, mysteries, and love where the biggest mystery of all is...Why did they let this happen?

Story: Chika Homura is your average, ...
