The story centers on a young woman named Akane, who is thrown for a loop when her boyfriend suddenly dumps her. The icing on the cake? She’s been replaced by a girl her boyfriend met in an online RPG that they played together online called Forest of Savior.
Since Akane only played the game in order to spend time with her boyfriend she decides to log in one last time. As she’s venting her anger by killing mobs in the forest she comes across an Afro-sporting, Noh-mask wearing player, who comes across as being very cold and distant. Despite, the player’s cold demeanor Akane decides to tell Yamada all about her problems and about her recent breakup. Yamada’s reply? He’s not interested.

That’s when Akane realizes she’s come face-to-face with the real life Yamada. Just as she’s about to ask Yamada about this her ex-boyfriend and new lover show up. Akane decides to swiftly convince Yamada to pretend to be her boyfriend. Yamada agrees, but only because Akane gifted him with an item that will be useful in the game.
