While testing his new 8mm camera at night, Kaito Kirishima is caught amid a mysterious explosion in his small town. Strangely, Kaito wakes up the next day perfectly fine, but with no recollection of what happened exactly the day before. Unfazed by what seems to have been just a dream, he heads to school not giving much thought to the incident. Discussing with his friends about the camera, they decide to make a movie during summer break. They invite two upperclass students to participate in the project: recently arrived Ichika Takatsuki and the odd Remon Yamano. In a strange twist of fate, Ichika starts living with Kaito as his sister has to work overseas. Summer days are about to get exciting for the small film crew.

Charming, if not predictable. Art style is reminiscent of "Highschool of The Dead" and that's made apparent. The color scheme for most all scenes are impeccable (these guys really know their way around a color wheel), the fashion is summery and fun, and the characters have such dynamic personalities around each other. I loved this series. Flat out. Would recommend.

From the first episode, this looks pretty good. Although very similar to Onegai teacher (same writer)
