Welcome to Wakaba-Soh focuses on the character of Kentarou, a young teen that discovers that the girl he has a crush on is working as the caretaker of his almost entirely female dormitory. As Kentarou tries to impress Karen, he also fails to realize that one of his childhood friends, Arai, also lives at the dormitory and has held an unrequited love for him all this time.
