Ann Clements is terminally ill. Born with an inoperable tumour in her temple, numerous doctors told her during her childhood that she wouldn’t survive into her adulthood. Ann’s parents, regarding their frail and sickly young daughter as a hindrance, sent her away to a fancy all-girls’ boarding school, St Cecilia’s, located in the countryside at an early age to get rid of her. Ann’s future looked like a bleak, desolate thing – but, by some miracle, she survived much longer than expected. At the age of nineteen, Ann now works at St Cecilia’s as an assistant teacher, while having no plans, goals, or dreams. What can she hope to accomplish, after all, when her life might suddenly come to a close? Ann’s job is fulfilling enough, but the monotony of her daily routine isn’t enough to satisfy her. As her twentieth birthday approaches, Ann’s desire to experience more of the world beyond St Cecilia’s walls increases… And then Ann meets St Cecilia’s new nurse, Asaba Kohaku. What will happen between the two women next…?

Autumn. With the leaves just starting to change color, a boy arrives at Yunagi Village. The first person he meets is a girl handing out flyers — a cute, cat-eared waitress. “P-Please come to Cafe Setaria! We hope to see you!” Guided in by the waitress, he enters the shop and encounters another like-eared girl. Thinking his reaction to her was strange, she asks the boy: “Can you, perhaps, see these ears?” The girls were in fact therianthropes, she said. Normal humans couldn’t see their ears and tails. Now that he knows their secret, the boy is roped into working together with them at the cafe. He’ll soon discover all the strange and interesting difference between their races. Just another day at the Cafe Setaria.
