Shinya Yukimura and Ayame Himuro are brilliant students at Saitama University. Himuro suddenly confesses she is in love with Yukimura who, unsure how to respond, asks how to define love. Himuro presents mathematical evidence, such as the number of minutes she spends staring at him and her increases in heart rate. Their conclusion is that love is based on a mathematical formula. Fellow student, Kanade Kotonoha, worries they have gone mad. They begin replicating a romantic manga scene in which Yukimura traps Himuro against a wall while tracking her heart rate and determine that physical closeness has the most extreme result. Yukimura worries they are confusing love for illness. They repeat their experiment 100 times but find the trap move becomes less effective over time. Himuro compares Yukimura’s trap move to a Sumo palm thrust, which is not romantic. Kotonoha insists love is based on emotions and presents a story of falling in love with her high school teacher as evidence, but is foiled when Yukimura breaks the story down into a mathematical formula and demands details of her romantic history. Himuro punishes him for being too demanding so he repeats the trap move once more, insisting he will mathematically prove love exists, causing her heart rate to rise again.
