Yuuya, part of the male pop duo ZINGS, may be the laziest performer in the Japanese music industry. The guy’s partner out there gives out 110% every night (and luckily, he’s pretty popular), but Yuuya’s lame, sloppy dancing and the guy’s outspoken hostility towards the audience fake, causing fans to hate him and his agent to find ways to avoid him. The career of a pop idol is not the easy path of comfort and popularity that Yuuya expects…
After a particularly lifeless performance, Yuuya meets a girl backstage. She wears colorful clothes, she is full of energy and vitality, and all she wants from life is to perform. There’s only one problem: She’s been dead for a year. This is the ghost of Asahi Mogami, the beloved singer whose stage time is tragically cut short, unless… If ghosts are real, does soul possession really last. to that?
