Ryuuji Takasu is starting his second year of high school but his appearance resembles that of a delinquent thug because of his glaring eyes. He hopes to make friends with his crush Minori Kushieda, but accidentally bumps into and is chewed out by Taiga Aisaka, a petite sharp-tongued classmate known as the Palmtop Tiger and who is best friends with Minori. He later discovers that Taiga has mistakenly placed in his bag a love letter to his only friend Yusaku Kitamura. As Taiga comes to his apartment to attack him to recover the letter (which is actually just an empty envelope), Ryuuji stops her and she faints from starvation. Ryuuji and Taiga make a deal where they will help each other meet their crushes. Ryuuji discovers Taiga lives alone in the apartment complex next door and has a dirty kitchen, so he cleans her area and offers to cook for her. During gym class, Ryuuji and Taiga try to create a situation where Taiga would be left alone with Yusaku but it backfires as Ryuuji hits Taiga on the head with a ball instead. They try to set up a lunch double date, but Yusaku and Minori are called away for activities. At the end of school, Taiga tries to give Yusaku a bag of cookies she had made in home economics class, but Yusaku rushes off that she can't catch up. The next day, the classmates think Ryuuji and Taiga are a couple since they spend so much time together, that Minori gets worried and pulls them aside. The bonus chapter follows a typical day at home for Yasuko Takasu, Ryuuji's mother who works nights at a hostess in a night club.

At Ami's vacation home, Taiga shyly declines a request to shop for groceries with Yusaku so that she and Ryuji can plan places and events to scare Minori into being closer to Ryuji. When Ryuji asks Minori if she has a boyfriend, Minori responds that it is like her belief in ghosts in that she knows it exists but that she has not met the right person to love. Yusaku and Ami join in on the plan to scare Minori; they come up with a test of courage activity where they would populate the cave with scary things. But when Ryuji won't reveal to Ami why he is doing this, Ami refuses to help. As the gang go through the cave, Ami pulls Ryuji aside and questions whether he is compatible with Minori, and that she would be a better choice. The scary things backfire on Ryuji, Ami, and Taiga as it turns out Yusaki and Minori have planned their own scare pranks. They do some fireworks. After returning home, Taiga goes with Ami and her classmates to a nail salon and get made up.

Haruta writes a story that pits Ami and the class against Ruji and Taiga. When Taiga meets her father, she kicks him in the groin and storms off but Ryuji convinces her to return.

Ami agrees as long as she gets to meet him, but when Minori gets word of it, she becomes upset, and tells Ryuji not to trust him. This is later affirmed when during the beauty contest, Ryuji gets a message from Taiga's father that he is not attending the show and has given up on the idea of reuniting.
