Story
Onoda Sora is a second year high school student. All the students at his school have the same hairstyle, uniform, bag and shoes. There is not a hint of individuality. Their school life is governed by unreasonable and excessively strict rules which place emphasis on discipline. Sora who is virtually invisible at school, leads a lousy adolescence at the bottom of the class. His good friend Tsukioka Chuya belongs to the same class and is the total opposite of Sora. Chuya does not read situations and his unpredictable behaviour always surprises those around him. There is a female student Machida Mao that the two of them are interested in. She cannot fit in at school and refuses to go to school because she is against dyeing the beautiful brown hair that she was born with to black. Sora and Chuya decide to crush their school’s unreasonable rules. Their decision soon develops into a situation that involves the whole school.
