Hope's story revolves around Aikawa Yusuke, a second year high school student at Shikaido High. Until three years ago he never thought about leaving the place where he grow up and a house he had so far called home. Even if sometimes co-existing with is control maniac father wasn’t an easy task it was nothing that he could not bare. However one fatidic day everything changed, an event that would happen that would affect everyone’s lives at the Aikawa residence.
A dying wish. A promise made. A light that would fade out. A dream that would never come through.
That lake where once two close siblings shared their hopes and dreams would be the point where a page of Yusuke life would be torn apart. That tiny creature he held tightly on his back, was thanking him just a moment ago… but now she just remained motionless without making as much as a sound … he could not even feel the warmth of her breath on his neck anymore. The only thing he could feel was his own tears running down his face, those tears that could not wash away the guilt that weighted on his chest.
One year ago, Yusuke entered High School, joining Shikaido High leaving behind his town and family behind looking to start anew. He moved to a small apartment where he currently resides and that he currently pays by juggling part time jobs. Yusuke personality could be described as a laid back type of person, with a witty sense of humor, cynical and sarcastic at times. A new journey will begin for him signaled by the start of a new school year. Crossing paths with other unique individuals, he will get into a crossroad and face hard decisions that might change not only his own future but of those whose life he will touch.
Will Yusuke be able to keep the promise he made to his sister three years ago, regaining something he lost in his past?
