Hatori is the heroine of this story. She always dreamt of getting together with her childhood friend, Rita. But to her despair, he soon gets a girlfriend and she is left alone. However, the most popular boy in school takes notice of her.
Both deal with a heroine who falls in love with a boy but ends up being a third wheel in his relationship with another girl. At the same time, a second boy appears and tries to snatch her heart away. The two are a bit different, with 'heroine shikkaku' being more on the funny side. Nevertheless, they are quite similar, especially in regard to the characters and plot as a whole.
