With his mother taken away from him and having lost everything, Lag Seeing is now a letter whose delivery has been assigned to Gauche Suede, a Letter Bee. Despite their troubling start, the two of them become friends, leading Lag to realize what his aim in life is: to deliver people's most important feelings in the form of letters, just as Gauche has done.

"Letter Bee" is one of the absolute worst things I have ever had the displeasure of watching, for so many different reasons. The show is a lazy, uninspired, generic, piece of garbage that fails at anything it could've had ...
