STORY

Hurubita Shopping District was once lively and bustling with shoppers. However, times had changed and when the district was on the brink of becoming a “shutter district”, Makoto, the grandson of the greengrocer, decides to whip the place back into shape.
The once weak and frail Makoto was now the key person behind Hurubita’s revival. Not only did he make sure all of the stores were thriving, he personally was the reason for why the shopkeepers had a little pep in their step.
When the western food restaurant of the shopping district starts thinking about succeeding the family business, their son, Shouta, comes back from Italy after seven years… Will Shouta be able to handle the changes that the district, and Makoto, have undergone?
