Nakata Kenta, a second-year student of Meiou University, is called “ugly” because of his lamentable looks. The ace of the university’s debate club, Kenta’s goal is not to win the national university debate championship, but to date an exquisite beauty. Like Kenta, fellow second-year student and captain of the university’s wrestling club, Shinohara Sachie, is called “beast” because of her lamentable looks. What Sachie wants the most is neither a gold medal nor a break, but an extraordinarily handsome boyfriend. Both of them have never had a significant other before. What they have in common is that they both go for attractive people while being blind to their own looks. One day, Kenta and Sachie happen to lay hands on the same book at the library at the same time. One look at the other’s face and each loses any thought of making a concession. They start to argue about who should borrow the book. Going by logic, Kenta claims he was first and Sachie tells him that they will decide the matter with a game of scissors, paper, stone. The matter gets nowhere. The two of them eventually leave the library and go their own way. That is when they each have fateful encounters. Kenta collides with Sachie’s friend, the exquisitely beautiful Kamijo Azusa and Sachie bumps into Kenta’s friend, the extraordinarily handsome Kitahara Sosuke. Naturally, Kenta and Sachie fall in love at first sight with each other’s good friend. They team up to develop strategies from the encounter to becoming the significant other of Azusa and Sosuke, and put these into practice … … It is a hard fight for them with numerous blunders. Will their hopeless romance come true?
