Kanade Amakusa is a high school student who is suffering from a curse called “Absolute Choices.” This curse requires him to select an action from a list of two or three options that appear before him at any time, and has no control over what choices appear. Many of them are weird or perverse and as a result, the curse has tainted his reputation with his classmates and other people around him, making his life very difficult. However, one day, a choice he makes on his way home from school causes a mysterious, beautiful young girl to fall from the sky. (Synopsis from MyAnimeList.net / Wikipedia)
