Poor Communication Kills... or at least makes relationships a more dificult than usual.

Toono Satoru is a mostly expressionless boy who has a crush on popular Baseball player Tamiya. He spends most of his time shut away in the art room at school drawing him and never for a moment thinks that his crush would ever be anything more than one sided... until Tamiya asks him out. Inwardly Toono is thrilled but it doesn't show on his face.

It requires endless patience on Tamiya's part just to not give up on him, and incredible effort on Toono's just to get his feelings across.
