Shortly after the death of his grandfather Matsugorō Sawamura, who was an accomplished shamisen player, Setsu Sawamura leaves Aomori and moves to Tokyo having lost his passion for the shamisen. He bumps into the aspiring actress Yuna Tachiki, and after collapsing in the streets of Roppongi, he is taken to her apartment. The next day they hang out with her friend Taketo, a guitar player for a rock band. That night, Setsu plays the shamisen in the park and recalls that he stopped playing the shamisen because of his grandfather's dying wish. On the next day right before Taketo's concert, Taketo takes his anger out on Setsu, causing the attendees to become restless due to the delay in the start of his concert. Needing time for Taketo to calm down, Setsu performs the shamisen in an impromptu opening act performance, which goes viral. At the start of spring, Yuna moves out and reveals to Setsu that she was unhappy with her talent agency and left it to pursue a better career opportunity.

Setsu's mother Umeko Sawamura drags an unconscious Setsu to his new home inside a boarding house. After Setsu wakes up, he performs the shamisen with Umeko singing, attracting an audience. However, the performance ends with Setsu accidentally breaking one of the strings and despite that, he won the approval of the neighborhood that permits him to practice his shamisen at home. The next day, Setsu begins school at Umezono Academy and makes a friend in Shuri Maeda, who is also very interested in the shamisen and also found a broken shamisen left in the music prep room. After school, Setsu is given a new shamisen case by his older brother Wakana, who is supportive of his decision to move to Tokyo.

Shuri is then caught listening to Matsugoro's improvisation shamisen song Shungyou, leading Setsu to ask her about how she came to know that song. Shuri reveals that her grandmother first met Matsugoro back when she was a kid having evacuated to the countryside, and that she formed the Tsugaru Shamisen Appreciation Club hoping to find someone who understands the meaning of that song. However, with the song being improvised and changing with each performance, Setsu tells Shuri to give up on it. This response prompts Shuri's friends Yui Yamazoto and Kaito Yaguchi to join, with Keiko Koyabu becoming the club's advisor. Koyabu reveals that the broken shamisen found in the clubroom belonged to school alum Kousuke Ogata, known by his stage name Kamiki Seiryuu. To ask about the shamisen, the club attends one of his concerts and asks him afterwards. Seiryuu's response that he doesn't care about it being played again angers Setsu, and in response Seiryuu asks Setsu to play for him with Setsu giving a substandard performance. Setsu becomes lost in thought, but is convinced to play for Shuri's grandmother.

Masamune HirataAki ItamiApril 24, 2021 (2021-04-24)
Having accepted Shuri's request to perform Shungyou, Setsu scrambles to learn how to play that song, but comes to realize that he is incapable of playing it. However, Wakana tells Setsu that because Shuri and her grandmother do not realize the song's difficulty that he should focus on performing his own version. As he practices his song, he realizes the skill gap between himself and Matsugoro, but understands the importance of making the song his own. At the performance, he plays his modified version of Shungyou for Shuri's grandmother, and she reflects on the time when she first met Matsugoro when she evacuated to the countryside at age six. Despite being able to easily tell that this version is not the same version she remembers, she expresses her appreciation and explains the qualities that she remembers from meeting Matsugoro and how it was crafted into his performance, while Setsu responds by explaining why that is a difficult song to master. This performance inspires Shuri to keep the club going. Meanwhile, Umeko arranges to have Setsu enter the Matsugorou Cup, a high school shamisen competition.

Rai Nagamori, who is experienced with a different style of shamisen, joins the club as they are set to enter the Matsugorou Cup as a team. Setsu becomes the club's teacher, but frustrated by the club's inability to produce a decent sound, as well as his unwillingness to lower his standards for them, Setsu quits the role. Setsu returns home and is greeted by Umeko, who is pressuring Setsu to enter the individual competition of the Matsugorou Cup causing him to get in an heated argument. The next day, Setsu apologizes to Shuri, and Koyabu brings in Seiryuu to teach the club and give them advice. Setsu performs the song the club intends to play for the competition, Shinbushi, and Seiryuu joins in, demonstrating their abilities to play in harmony with each other. Despite not getting any advice, the club has a better understanding of how to match each other as Setsu managed to match Seiryuu's simplistic performance. Sometime later, the club is able to play in sync for the first time.

Shuri falls into a slump and with Setsu reminded about his own worries having returned to his hometown, he feels disinterested in helping her out. That night, Rai tells Setsu about how Kaito used to play soccer, but he retired after suffering a serious knee injury, and his father saw this as an opportunity to get him to study to become a lawyer like his father. The next day, Odawara brings the club out to the Tsugaru Strait and explain the history of the Tsugaru shamisen. Afterwards, Wakana drops by asking Setsu if he is entering the individual competition or not and responds with uncertainty. Wakana then explains that the most important part about playing the shamisen is the audience. Later that day, Setsu practices the shamisen by himself as he decides to enter the competition, and Shuri listens in on it inspiring her to keep on trying. On the day before returning to Tokyo, the club performs Shinbushi without any mistakes, and that night they attend the Nebuta festival.

Meanwhile, the team from Fukuoka led by Ushio Arakawa performs, and despite the unorthodox nature of the performance, the crowd is wowed by the energy channeled into the performance. Shuri's nervousness reaches its peak and turns to Yui for support, while Yui tries to keep the club focused by acting tough.

Meanwhile, Umeko and Ryuugen have a heated conversation as Ryuugen wants Setsu to inherit the Kamiki school much to Umeko's disapproval.

Outside the venue, Souichi is approached by Seiryuu asking who he is interested in, and Souichi answers saying that he is interested in nobody. Elsewhere, Setsu is approached by Umeko, who explains that the purpose of the competition is for Setsu to revive Matsugorou's sound and make it known to the world. Setsu becomes conflicted between playing like his grandfather for Umeko and playing his own stil as requested by his teammates and competitors.

At the awards ceremony, Umeko presents Setsu with his trophy and drops it just before she hands it to him, breaking it, while telling him that she is disappointed with his decision not to play Matsugorou's style.
