Slow Loop Synopsis
When Hiyori, a girl whose deceased father taught her the joys of fishing, headed to the sea to spend some time alone, she never thought she would find another girl there. After a while, this girl named Koharu, and she end up fishing and cooking together, while continuing to get to know each other little by little.
During their brief time together Koharu discovers that the reason Hiyori went out to sea that day was because she was hesitant to meet her new adoptive family that very night. But what a coincidence! Koharu will also meet her new family that day! It can’t be a coincidence, can it? It only remains to follow these two “sisters” and their new life together!
