Kurogo Kurusuis the central protagonist, is a 15-year-old teenage high school student who has a passion for kabuki. He hopes to establish a kabuki club at his school but things are not that easy after he realizes that he needs to find students to help him. The TV series of the light novel adaptation has been created but the characters of the show have not yet been revealed.
