Pine Jam first teased Just Because! with a series of flyers, which were passed out on April 1. An official website did open at the time, though it had closed its doors shortly afterwards.
Pine Jam describes Just Because! as:
It’s the winter of their third year in high school, close to the end of the second semester, when students have little time left in their high school life. Everyone was just counting the days until graduation.
Then he suddenly came home.
He was their middle school classmate who moved far away. And yet, they were reunited by this peculiarly timed transfer. It was as if a signal chimed out to the emotions of these students, who thought they’d end their high school life with little commotion.
Pine Jam previously released a visual and descriptions for the major characters. The image features the following characters from left to right:
- Hazuki Morikawa
- Haruto Soma
- Mio Natsumi
- Eita Izumi
- Ena Komiya
