An Outstanding student Iwakura Mitsumi has perpetually fancied about leaving her hometown, moving to a reputable university, and causing a positive difference in the world. But she’s too confident in reaching her goals that she’s not qualified for the very overwhelming city life in her new high school in Tokyo. Luckily, she proceeds to make fast friends with Shima Sousuke, a good-looking classmate who’s as laid-back as she is over-prepared.
