One day, high school student Ikenouchi Miku, who pines for the dream guy she whose face she did not even see at the entrance ceremony, is suddenly told by Narahashi Sohei, the most popular guy in school, “Please take care of me from next week.” When a bewildered Miku asks her parents about the matter, she learns that her father is starting a boarding house. Furthermore, they will be living with two additional people. Sohei’s good friend, Katagiri Hayato, comes to help him with the move. He was the guy Miku had previously seen kissing a girl in school. The attitudes of Sohei and Hayato are the same at school and at home. Although Miku tells them to be like they used to be at school and keep the boarding house a secret, she is uncomfortable with the stares of girls when she is with the two popular guys. Disgusted with the three of them for doing as they please in her home, Miku cannot feel at ease. She ends up venting her frustration in front of everyone before storming out … … Then one day, Miku touches Sohei’s right hand and the feel of it is the same of the dream guy who helped her on the day of the school entrance ceremony. But just as she wonders if this is destiny, she is introduced to his girlfriend, Ozawa Miyuki.
