Ichitaka's birthday is around the corner and there's only one thing he wants: his beloved Iori - wearing nothing but a ribbon and a smile. Sadly, that won't be happening anytime soon. Barring his initial wish, Ichitaka will settle for a delightful evening on the town with Iori (most likely, with her clothes on), but his childhood-friend Itsuki shows up and totally ruins the mood.
Bummed-out and bedraggled, Ichitaka manages to ask Iori out again, but she has already made other plans! Will Ichitaka let the b-day blues get the best of him, or will a kiss from Itsuki make him change his mind about his entire, angst-addled existence?
