What is the plot of Glass Heart?

We have a synopsis for Glass Heart;

“Glass Heart tells the story of Akane Saijo, a college student and aspiring drummer, who finds herself suddenly kicked out of her band. However, things take a turn when the brilliant musician Naoki Fujitani stumbles upon her talent and invites her to join his new ensemble.”

Who is in the cast of Glass Heart?

Satoh Takeru plays the role of Fujitani Naoki. The actor will be most familiar to Netflix subscribers who watched the live-action Rurouni Kenshin movies The Beginning and The Final, in which he played the role of Himura Kenshin, and the romantic J-drama series First Love: Hatsukoi. He is also known for his role as Nogami Ryotaro in Kamen Rider.
