Tanaka Yukio is bored with life; he lives unremarkably from day-to-day, never doing anything to make himself stand out. With barely any presence, no social life and an embarrassingly bland taste in music, Yukio doesn't have much going for him. However, after a chance meeting with the outspoken rocker Ryusuke and his peculiar dog, Yukio's dull existence changes forever.

As Yukio begins to shred his way to the top alongside his outrageous band members, will he be able to transform from an awkward and nervous young boy into a man worthy of being an idol, and will it be enough to muster up the courage to confess to his old friend Izumi?
