Synopsis of Tsubasa to Hotaru from MAL:
The story revolves around Tsubasa Sonokawa, a 15-year old high school girl who fell in love with her upperclassman when he saved her after she fainted at the train station from anemia.

She learns that she might have more of a connection with this boy named Aki than she first thought…
