The plot of Anitomo is as follows:
The romantic comedy manga centers on the relationship between old-fashioned and domestically minded high school girl Mai Nanase, and her brother’s friend, the innocent late bloomer Sota Nishino. Mai and her brother Yukihiro’s room are adjacent to each other, with thin walls that allow them to overhear each other. The story begins when, one day, she overhears Sōta telling Yukihiro that he thinks Mai is cute.
