She turns out to be Mai Sakurajima, a famous former actress and fellow student at Minegahara High School. However, her surprise at seeing Mai in such a daring outfit in the library is nothing compared to her shocking realization that he is the only one who can see her! Remembering an event from her past, Sakuta offers to help Mai discover the reason for her invisibility. Although their relationship is initially acrimonious, the two quickly grow close: Mai and Sakuta grow to appreciate each other, and their friendship develops into a budding romance.
This makes his determination to solve Mai’s dilemma even greater. As the investigation progresses, Sakuta attributes Mai’s situation to an urban legend known as the Adolescence Syndrome: strange phenomena that occur in youth, unexplained by science and often dismissed as delusions. With few promising results, Mai’s situation worsens to the point that not being seen is the least of her worries. Will Sakuta and Mai be able to solve the mystery of her Adolescence Syndrome before it completely disappears?
