Shinji Takeda is Morisaki Taku, a college student in Tokyo. Flying home to the city of Kochi for vacation, he recalls the events of his last two high school years. A late transfer student named Muto Rikako transfers into Taku's school and immediately establishes herself as a star student, although she hates southern Japan (Where "everyone talks like in an old Movie"), and does not fit in with the rest of the class. She also "borrows" money from Taku (claiming she lost her own) during a school trip so she can travel to Tokyo and visit her father (who she hasn't seen since her parents separated the year before). Her trip, accompanied by Taku, begins to cause trouble for him around the school and bring him in conflict with his best friend Matsuno Yutaka, who likes Rikako (though she does not return his attention). Slowly Taku realizes he also likes Rikako despite her faults, but is unable to tell his friend about it.
