Plot[edit]

Kyoko Hori is a bright and popular high school girl, contrasting with her classmate, the gloomy and apparently nerdy glasses-wearing guy Izumi Miyamura. Outside of school, Hori dresses down and takes care of the household and her younger brother Souta. She tries to keep this a secret from her classmates. One day when Souta returned home with a nosebleed, he was helped by a guy who has a bunch of earrings and tattoos as well as a punk-styled look. The guy recognizes her and reveals himself to be Miyamura. The two agree to keep their real personas a secret from their schoolmates, but start relating to each other as friends and later as a couple.
