The story of Aharen-san wa Hakarenai revolves around two major characters: Reina Aharen and Raidou Matsuboshi. They sit next to each other but have very different personalities. On one hand, is Reina, a chibi and cute character. Although she has a quiet voice, she is not exactly shy. However, she does have trouble reading people and comes off as rather random. Sometimes she is too invested in people, while other times, she is too distant. On the other hand, we have Raidou Matsuboshi, her seatmate, who often gives off an intimidating aura. He has a face that can scare anyone, but the reality is far from it. Raidou has a very kind heart. However, his peculiarity lies in the fact that he sometimes gets drifted away in his imaginations. 

Seated next to each other, they are complicated characters who are too difficult to understand and are often misunderstood by others. However, Raidou seems to start understanding Reina. When Raidou picks up the latter’s eraser, Reina now sees them as the best of friends. From sitting next to each other to developing a kind friendship, the two grow with each other into their best selves.
