It is unrelated to a different series of the same title, Kakyūsei, also produced by Pink Pineapple in 1995. It was based on a game originally created by Masato Hiruta more popularly known as Elf, and had a TV series produced after success of the OVA. The 14th episode of the TV series was never aired on television. The TV series produced further sequels and spin offs that were considerably more explicit than their earlier versions.

The story revolves around Mizuho Yuuki, whose best friend Miko has fallen in love with Tohru.

There is also outside interference from Ai, a younger student in their school, who also likes Tohru.
