Japanese animated romantic drama produced by Japanese animation studio Shaft, based on the 1993 live-action drama of the same name.

One summer day in a seaside town, students Norimichi and Yusuke meet their crush, Nazuna, at the pool where they then have a swimming race to impress her. Norimichi loses, but finds a mysterious ball in the water. Yusuke wins and is asked by Nazuna to go watch the fireworks together. When Nazuna reveals to Norimichi that she was going to elope with the winner to get away from her mother’s remarriage, Norimichi angrily throws the ball he found in the water. At once, he finds himself back at the moment of the race. With the day repeating over and over again, what answers will Nazuna and Norimuchi find?
