Preview of this summary: 

 

Chapter 1

Tsukuru Tazaki always saw his four best friends from high school as colorful, lively

people who made him more than the colorless person he felt he was.

Therefore, Tsukuru became depressed following his sophomore year in college when his

friends told him that they did not want to be friends anymore without explaining why. He

spent five months contemplating suicide.

 

Sixteen years later, Tsukuru is working in the railroad industry in Tokyo. He is on his

fourth date with Sara Kimoto, telling her about his high school friends. When she asks

what happened to them, he shares that he went home during school breaks to be with his

old friends, but the summer of his sophomore year, that opportunity disappeared.

 

Chapter 2

While he was in his hometown, Nagoya, on a school break from college in

Tokyo, Tsukuru’s intimate group of high school friends delivered the message that they

did not want to see him again. When asked for an explanation, Ao, one of the four, told

him if he thought about it, he should be able to figure it out.  

 

Sara is shocked that he never tried to see any of them again or pursue a reason for their

behavior.Tsukuru explains that he was in shock from the complete rejection. Sara pushes

him to pursue the truth for his own good, but he says it is best to forget about it. She tells

him that he cannot erase history and trying to ignore it is dangerous. Tsukuru tells her he

does not want to talk about it, and she ends their date abruptly.
