The story revolves around an unnamed third-year Kyoto University student who reminisces about his early campus life. He meets Ozu whose encouragement sets him on a mission of dubious morality. He contemplates his affection for a younger female student, Akashi, and makes promises to her, usually of and within a romantic subtext. The culmination of his dubious missions often conflict with his interest in her in some way.

The Tatami Galaxy (四畳半神話大系, Yojōhan Shinwa Taikei, literally “4½ Tatami Mythological Chronicles”) is a Japanese campus novel written by Tomihiko Morimi, originally published in December 2004 by Ohta Publishing in the tankōbon format and later reissued in March 2008 by Kadokawa Shoten as a bunkoban. Its first-person narrator is an unidentified upperclassman at a Kyoto university reminiscing on the misadventures of his previous years of campus life, with each of the four chapters taking place in parallel universes in which he is enrolled in a different university society. As of January 2011, Korean and Chinese translations have been published. The novel was adapted into an 11-episode anime television series of the same name produced primarily in traditional animation at Madhouse under the direction of Masaaki Yuasa which aired on Fuji Television's noitamina programming block from April 22 to July 1, 2010. The series won the 2010 Japan Media Arts Festival Grand Prize in the Animation Division, the first television program to do so, with the jury describing it in their justification as a “richly expressive work that turns the limitations of TV on its head” and complimenting its “unique scene layouts, characters' actions and color scheme.” The series has been licensed by North American distributor Funimation Entertainment for streaming on its website, YouTube and Hulu; and by Siren Visual and Anime Limited for home video release in Australia and New Zealand and the United Kingdom and Ireland respectively.
