Ame-iro Cocoa Synopsis
Aoi Okura is having a difficult day. He is used to being mistaken for a girl, but it is even worse when a captivating stranger on the train calls him a creeper for staring a little too long. Aoi is soaked by a sudden rainstorm and takes shelter at Rainy Color, a cozy cafe where the warmness of the staff compliments the sweet hot cocoa he is served. When he falls into a job at the cafe he feels like things are ultimately looking up – until Keiichi Iwase, the man he could not help but stare at on the train, shows up. Did this day just worsen, or better?
