The main character, Hitori “Bocchi-chan” Goto, is extremely shy and has a mysterious air about her. Hitori grew interested in the idea of forming a band and started playing guitar on her own. She was unable to form a band, however, because she didn’t have any friends.

Regardless of this, Hitori continued to hone her guitar skills and once she decided she was good enough posted a video of herself playing guitar online. She created a persona for herself as a “guitar hero”. Hitori was close to becoming a hikikomori (shut-in) when she was approached by Nijika Ijichi to join her band Cable Tie.

Nijika Ijichi is a very cheerful high school girl, who is the leader of the band Cable Tie, and plays the drums. After she recruits Hitori into her band she acts very protectively of her and tends to look after her.

Nijika is a free spirit and tends to rush in as a coordinator for the other band members. She is also the manager of a live music house called STARRY, and so has experience performing live.

In December 2017, Hamaji launched the manga in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max magazine.
