Love Flops is a story about a boy named Asahi Kashiwagi, who is just a simple and ordinary student. One morning, he watched a vague fortune teller on TV. It led to him encountering five girls in the worst circumstances. These girls also happened to be new students and teachers in his school. Yoshio, who claimed to be Asahi’s friend, became suspicious of the latter’s knowledge about these girls. As Asahi went on to spend time with the girls, he realized there have been a misunderstanding. Until another fortune on TV told Asahi that he will be receiving a love letter. It will instruct him to go to the cherry blossom tree behind his school. Indeed, Asahi discovered a love letter from his shoe locker – fulfilling the fortune. Asahi then proceeded to go to the cherry blossom tree to find out what’s up.
