One year after the suicide of C-list model Kisaragi Miki, five of her fans come together for a commemorative meeting; fan club leader Iemoto, Oda Yuji, "Snake", Yasuo, and "Strawberry Girl". After meeting each other for the first time, they reminisce about their idol, wondering how someone so bright and happy could have possibly taken her own life. As they discuss her death, the facts, and evidence, they slowly come to the realization that her death didn't occur they way they thought it did. The more they talk, the more the case takes shape in their minds, and the closer they come to the truth.Written by
I thought this was going to be just a silly, superficial comedy, but while it is genuinely funny, it also has a lot of heart and emotion to it. Also the story just develops on and on in unexpected ways, always keeping you guessing. It's a really enjoable ride. I liked it a lot!
