Their hope is that they can make music so fantastic that they will be known as one of the best bands in Japan. Shuichi struggles to write songs that will capture the hearts of his fans. He often agonizes over whether his lyrics are just right. One day a paper containing some new lyrics blows away. Luckily, a blonde stranger stops to pick it up. At first, Shuichi is simply grateful to have had his lyrics saved. Things change, however, when the stranger tells Shuichi that his lyrics are no good. Shuichi is crushed and extremely angry.
