Jouji Gouda is a new transfer student at Hakuryo High. He fell in love at first sight and boldly proposed to Akane Suzumiya, representative of his class, on his first day at the new school.

OK, what was that? It’s either a big “so what?” or a big mistake. Either is just fine.

I did say that I like Akane, in fact she was probably the only thing that was OK about this OVA, but even her presence wasn’t enough to catch my attention.
