ギフト ~under the rainbow~
Gift is a story that revolves around high school student Haruhiko Amami and his strong connection to the mysterious power that surround the town of Narasakicho. It has two distinguishing characteristics: a rainbow that seems permanently fixed in the sky no matter the weather, and an ability known as Gift possessed by all its inhabitants. Gift's power can only be evoked by each person once in a lifetime, and is able to grant a single miracle. To be successful, a Gift must reflect the shared feelings of both the giver and the receiver. If the feelings are not mutual, the Gift is distorted and has the ability to wreak havoc on the surrounding area. When this happens, a black streak appears in the rainbow above town until Gift is used correctly. The story begins as Haruhiko's younger sister, Riko Fukimine, returns home after several years away. Beginning with her appearance, Haruhiko's life starts to change very quickly and feelings of the past begin to surface once more.
In the city of Narasakimachi, the people live beneath a beautiful sky that is filled with a rainbow; no matter the weather, it is visible all year round. Also in town is the Morizono Research Lab, a place where scientists study the mysterious phenomenon ‘Gift.' Haruhiko Amami is a young man who, like the other residents of Narasakimachi, lives his day to day life with his friends. Joined by Kirino, his childhood friend; Tamami, a Gift researcher; Riko, who he hasn't seen for years; Rinka, a black-haired swordsman; Chisa, a rich girl; and other girls, Haruhiko has special meals, watches swimsuit contests and more.
