It’s a new school year and Ryuuji Takasu discovers not only is he in the same class as his best friend, Yusaku Kitamura, but also Minori Kukshieda whom he’s had an undisclosed crush on for quite some time.
Ryuuji, the main character, runs into Aisaka Taiga who happens to live next door. She’s pampered by her absent family, which makes her pretty lonely. Only Ryuuji can cheer her up, despite how high her defenses are. Eventually somethings happens – the thing that always happens.
