    After her parents move away, high school student Aoi Nishimori (Ayame Gouriki) lives alone in an apartment near her school. Her next door neighbor is Shuusei Kugayama (Kento Yamazaki), known as the "prince" of the school due to his popularity with the girls. But Shuusei always rejects their declarations of love, including those of Aoi`s best friend, Moe Shibuya (Rei Okamoto). One day, Shuusei`s apartment is damaged in a fire. Despite her negative feelings towards Shuusei over his treatment of Moe, Aoi allows him to secretly stay with her so he will not have to drop out of school. At first, Shuusei gets on Aoi`s nerves but his relaxed, lighthearted personality begins to win her over. But when senior Wataru Sanjo (Ren Kiriyama) asks her out and Shuusei`s ex-girlfriend Satsuki Mizuno (Anna Ishibashi) returns, Aoi has to decide how she truly feels for her roommate.
