Although admired at school for her kindness and academic prowess, high school student Kyouko Hori has been hiding another side of her. With her parents often away from home due to her work, Hori has to take care of her younger brother and does housework, without having time to socialize outside of school.
Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a haunting otaku who wears glasses. However, he is actually a kind and inept person to know. In addition, he has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair, and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder. By pure chance, Hori and Miyamura cross paths outside of school, neither looking like the other would expect. These seemingly opposite poles become friends, sharing a side that they have never shown to anyone.
