Sing a Bit of Harmony Plot
The film tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion, who moves to Keibu High School, where she quickly becomes popular due to her open-hearted personality and extraordinary athletic talent… but it turns out to be an AI in the test phase!
Shion’s goal is to make chronic loner Satomi “happy.” But no one would have expected her strategy: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, techie Touma, become more and more familiar with the new student.
Together with the popular Gocchan, the strong-willed Aya and the judo club member »Thunder«, they are more and more impressed by Shion’s singing and her seriousness, even if their pranks confuse them. But Shion’s actions entangle them all in a great chaos.
