In the description of Look Back we can read:

Student Ayumu Fujino frequently draws 4-panel manga for her school newspaper and is praised for having the best artwork in her class. One day, her teacher asks her to give up one of her manga slots in the school newspaper to an absent student named Kyomoto. When Kyomoto’s manga appears alongside Fujino, he receives much praise for his detailed art, which makes Fujino furious. Refusing to be defeated by those who barely go to school, Fujino dedicates herself to learning how to make manga. However, as time passes, her goal of overshadowing Kyomoto seems increasingly distant, and Fujino ends up surrendering and giving up the manga. Graduation day arrives and Fujino is invited to present Kyomoto with her graduation certificate. By chance, the two end up meeting face to face, and their unexpected meeting will end up having consequences far beyond what either of them could predict.
