The Fluffy Country Life of Brown Bear “Natsu” and Female Sharman “Machi”
Somewhere deep in the mountains of the Tohoku region of Japan, a female junior high school student, called Machi, is working at a shrine that worships bears. Her job title: Sharman.
One day she shares her deepest desire with her guardian bear, Natsu. She has been longing for a chance to attend a school in a city.
Now, Machi may have a passion for things she likes, but, she lacks in perseverance and worldly knowledge.
The worrywart Natsu, the bear, is not very happy about Machi’s determination, so, Natsu decides to provide her with all kinds of challenges she would need to overcome, in order to survive a tough city life.
