Ryo Aihara, a shy girl who has trouble holding conversations, is the only one at her school without a cell phone. With no friends to text or call, she convinces herself that owning one is pointless. However, with a strong desire for a cell phone, she envisions an ideal one to every detail.

Despite it being a made-up device, Aihara receives a call and realizes that she is the only one who hears the ringtone. Apprehensive but curious, she answers the call and hears a high school boy on the other end of the line. He introduces himself as Shinya Nozaki and claims that he is also using a phone in his head. The bizarre circumstance leads to the development of a close friendship between Aihara and Nozaki, one in which they can confide in each other.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Note: Tsuzuki Setsuri also did a manga based on the same novel.

"I will not change the future, the past, as they are things that I felt that I had to do, maybe this is the so called inevitable fate."

Similar people has similar ways to interact, and through this story is about knowing someone through an imaginative cellphone. A rather simple story, about a lonely girl who is somewhat envious of people, and a kindhearted boy.

The characters were rather realistic on how they would approach a conversation through an cellphone of nonexistent, to doubt oneself's sanity when they could talk through this phone.The girl was a timid girl, but a girl that was looking to change. ...
