Kodocha main image

Sana is a child actor who is at her wits end. Her first grade class is pointless because Hayama and the boys keeps terrorizing the teacher and doing whatever they want, so she takes a picture of Hayama with his pants down and then blackmails him into behaving in class. Without their ringleader the boys settle down a little, however Hayama becomes increasingly antisocial. Worried, Sana follows him home only to find that his father is never home, and his sister calls him the devil who killed their mother. So, Sana bullies his family into watching a drama that she's in, hoping it will heal some of their family wounds. It's the beginning of a crazy friendship.
