Plot of Sing a Bit of Harmony
One day, Shion moves to Kagebe City High School. On her first day at the new school, she suddenly starts singing in front of Satomi, who is excluded from the class, like in a musical, and says: “I will make you happy!”
Shion's excellent grades, athletic skills, and cheerfulness make her a popular girl in the class. Although Satomi asks her not to sing, Shion sings without hesitation, and her unexpected behavior causes a big uproar among her classmates.
