Synopsis of My Deer Friend Nokotan

No one knows that Torako used to be a criminal. All her classmates only know her as the perfect student. But everything changes when Nokotan, a horned transfer student, enters her life. Antlers aren't the only weird thing about Nokotan. His deer nose can sniff out Torako's secret past. Whether it's at school or the zoo, chaos follows this googly-eyed girl's every step. Torako has a lot of questions. Is Nokotan a deer, a girl, or something in between?
